The Christmas spirit was abundant on Saturday morning at our Christmas Fayre. The German themed event was largely run by our Year 7 students, under the watchful eye of Sixth Form assistants and their ingenuity and imagination was in evidence in the number of Christmas themed games to play. In addition our younger visitors took part in a variety of crafts and activities. The culmination of the morning was a very impressive raffle with a host of prizes including a six foot Christmas tree! We are very grateful to all those who kindly donated prizes to the raffle including Gulliver's Kingdom, Peak Feast, Tag Lane Dairy, Ginger Butchers, JW Nayler, Holdsworth Chocolates, Thornbridge Brewery, The George Hotel (Youlgrave), Youlgrave Shop, Bakewell Cheese Factory, Mad 4 Ink, Byways Café, John Hattersley Wines, Chocolates of the Peak, Bakewell Swimming Pool, The Fringe, The Wee Dram, Maria Slack, Adrian Frost and a number of our staff, students and their families. The event was made more festive by the addition of Christmas music, performed by our excellent Senior Windband. The whole event was presided over by Santa himself.
