Pupils at West Grantham Academy St Hugh’s can let their creativity run wild in a new purpose-built part of the school.
Parents were invited to take a tour of the recently completed Elements Centre, which as well as a base for lessons such as beauty, dance and cookery, is where pupils will enter and exit the school.
They were heavily involved in the preparation of the open evening, and also played an integral role during the night. Canapes were made by students who then served them to visitors. Another group put on a Bollywood-style dance display, while others sang Christmas carols.
Demonstrations were given in the new hair and beauty room, and members of the Young Journalist Academy ran a live blog throughout the evening.
Principal Louise Bennett said she was pleased the event was so well-attended and that parents had commented on the impressive facilities.
