Activities including crafts, sports and competitions helped raise the money.

Jess Smith, head of sixth form, said: “The fun started early as people dressed in something spotty with prizes for the spottiest tutor group and mini competitions.

“In the afternoon the entire school was off timetable and engaged in sporty, creative or fun activities.

“Thanks to everyone that donated, took part or helped to organise the fundraising for such a good cause.’

Students from years seven and eight watched a film in the theatre while Year 9s made ‘Spotacular art’ include Pudsey pots. There was also a ‘Spotacular Steps’ dance competition and other craft workshops.

Year 10 pitted their wits against judges in ‘Pudsey’s Den’, presenting pitches about local charities with the best ones going through to a final in front of an audience as well as principal Anne Hill and a team of judges.

Year 11s had a mash up of ‘It’s a Knockout’ and ‘Total Wipeout’ while the sixth formers created and served snacks and refreshments.
