Students at The King Alfred School Academy in Highbridge, Somerset capped off their happy years at the school and Sixth Form by wearing fancy dress for charity though the town.

They dressed as superheroes and in a whole host of fun costumes.

For some of them it was the end of 7 years at the brilliant school and Sixth Form.

They also raised thousands of pounds for charity during the school’s annual Rag Week for Brain Tumour Research.

Shoppers in Burnham  town centre were able to give the dressed-up students extra money towards the charity amount.


Principal Dan Milford said ‘”Our Sixth Form students did a remarkable job over the course of RAG Week in raising just under £2200 for charity. The effort they put into organising and staging the week was rewarded with such a pleasing total – amazing work again this year!”


The sixth form is part of The Priory Learning Trust and is attracting students from schools in Weston-super-Mare including Priory Community School Academy, Worle Community School Academy, as well as Bridgwater.

TKASA Sixth Form has a 100% pass rate, with many students going onto top universities and apprenticeships across the country.
