Pupils at a south east Northumberland school have hosted their annual Christmas market with a record breaking turn out from the community.

Visitors to Bedlingtonshire High School were met by the Salvation Army band playing an assortment of Christmas classics at the weekend.

Once in the market a range of stalls were selling Christmas presents for all the family as well as decorations, wreaths and Christmas trees themselves.

Assistant head teacher, Jamie Bell, said: “We put these events on every summer and Christmas to allow people to access our school and have an enjoyable day out, we are proud of the community aspect of our school and look to put these events on for the community. “It was a real team effort from the staff and students in the school who gave up their time to make this the best possible experience it could be.”
