Year 7 students at Tollbar Academy proudly showed off their classwork and the academy's facilities at the annual Grandparents' Day.

Hundreds of grandparents visited the academy over a four week period to see their grandchildren at work and find out what life is like in school today.

John and Cecily Hunter visited their grandson William (11), who said: "It was great to see them. I wanted them to come and see me at Tollbar. I showed them my Maths book and what I have been working on."

Lucie Hallam (11) welcomed her Grandma Lynne Hallam and her Great Aunt Pam Graves. Pam said: "It's a lovely school. I would love to attend!"

Ruby Thomson (11) said: "My grandma Sue Johnson visited a few weeks ago. She is great." Ruby chatted to Sue and Malcolm White, whose grandson Oliver Stewart attends Tollbar.

Stephen Moon, Tollbar Academy Principal, said: "It is always a pleasure to welcome relatives into the academy to see what the students are working on. The students get a boost just seeing that their grandparents are showing an interest in their school life and it helps grandparents to appreciate what goes on in the classroom today."
