To raise funds for the charity each student placed a 20p vote for who they would like to see ‘custarded’ and the head emerged as the clear favourite to get a soaking.

Reflecting on the generosity of the school community, Mr Baxter added: "The support we've received so far has been overwhelming.

“I'm truly grateful to everyone who has contributed, and I encourage everyone to get involved and help us make a real difference for Comic Relief."
