A barbecue and open afternoon hosted by Bright Futures School proved the biggest and best yet by the school for children with autism.
The school, currently based in Greenacres while its new home in Greenfield is built, opened its doors on July 17 for the fun-filled afternoon.
Pupils took guests on tours of the school while others joined members of staff flipping burgers on the barbecue in the playground.
DJs Noah and Brian entertained on the decks and there were plenty of stalls with hand-made goodies available for guests to buy.
Pupils and staff worked hard putting everything together and a lot of preparation went into the day, including baking cakes, making gifts and growing plants.
There was also a raffle, a bouncy castle, and some of the older pupils received awards for completed work.
Christina Stocks, from Bright Futures School, said: “We all had a brilliant time and luckily the rain kept off!
“We think the event was our biggest and best yet – and the busiest – with lots of guests enjoying the lovely sunshine.
“With your help and support, we managed to raise a fantastic £362. This money will now go towards our fundraising pot for kitting out our new school in Greenfield.”
The school welcomed special guests from Robert Scott, who are funding the new school build, along with contractors Medlock FRB Limited.
