Children in Need Fancy Dress 2014


Today we witnessed some creative genius by our Sixth Form students and a number of staff in support of Children in Need.

Lord Lawson of Beamish Academy played host to Spidergirl, Wonder Woman and Supergirl, Elsa, The Women in Black, Mrs Brown (I think this was the real Mrs Brown), numerous monsters and animals, the cast from Grease, a baby and lots, lots more as you will see from the amazing photos. All money raised from the fancy dress day and the sale of merchandise will be donated to Children in Need.

Huge thanks and well done to everyone who took part and donated in any way.
