Students celebrated the end of their school days by dressing up as hippies and letting off some steam on a bouncy castle.

The year 13 pupils from Nailsea School turned up for their last day in fancy dress - sporting flares, flowery outfits and John Lennon-style glasses to celebrate the 1970s.

The youngsters enjoyed speeches and a moving presentation by staff, followed by wipe-out games on the lawn with different houses competing against each other.

Revellers settled down for a barbecue after the colourful antics and said fond farewells to teachers and classmates.

Nailsea School's head of sixth form, Jon Reddiford, said: "The class of 2019 have been an incredible year group, and it has been a privilege to watch them grow, we wish them every success with their exams and future.

"It has been great working with them and seeing how resilient, supportive of each other and independent they have become as young adults."
