Hollywood came to Welwyn Garden City’s Ridgeway Academy at the end of term with staff and students turning out in film-themed fancy dress to celebrate the school’s inaugural charity day.
Students enjoyed participating in the Head's Quiz, Ridgeway's Got Talent and also had fun on the inflatable assault course at the end of the year.
Headteacher Sarah Mitcherson said: "After expenses we raised almost £1,800 which was divided between nominated school charity Isabel Hospice and the fundraising efforts towards the school's Camps International trip to Costa Rica in July 2021.
