Students and staff at Thomas Clarkson Academy in Wisbech raised £1,413.40 for Children in Need on Friday.
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.’
