Principal Emma Hardy Smith has also been sharing an advent calendar of christmas messages from pupils to spread joy from children on Twitter and Facebook.

She said: “This is a terrific end to the year. There is a real Christmas feel and excitement in the air. We were especially delighted to be able to donate so many gifts to the excellent charity Every Child Needs Christmas.”

The academy is part of The Priory Learning Trust and also has a successful Little Learners nursery.
