Over 100 courageous students and parents celebrated Halloween in style by braving Wisbech Grammar School’s ‘spooktacular’ Ghoul School.

The youngsters were given a torch-lit tour of the school, which is one of the oldest in the country, and were told a series of terrifying tales along the way.

Pupils in creepy costume and mortifying make-up, supplied by technical theatre manager Susan Duncan and school play director Alison Clayton, were on hand to give visitors a scare on the night, which proved to be a sell-out success.

The event was topped off with a feast of hot dogs, pumpkin soup and apple cake and was washed down with a blood-red concoction of cranberry juice, fruit juices and spices.

Alison Sloan, head of food and nutrition, said: “This annual event is now a sell-out and great fun and allows our pupils to showcase their delicious home-made food.”
