The event is set to take place on Friday, March 24 and organisers have said the day is likely to be the "biggest and best" fundraiser that Northampton Academy has ever achieved.

Lisa Hawkins, a teacher at Northampton Academy, said: “We are a caring school with inspirational pupils, who wants to give back to people who are less fortunate than themselves."

Over the past few weeks, the school council have been busy organising a host of activities for the day, such as a red-themed mufti-day for students.

The staff will be wearing 1980s themed fancy dress and will put their skills to the test in a talent show contest judged by the students, with a special surprise planned for the principal, Mr Parnell.

The money raised by the school will be spent by Comic Relief to help people living tough lives in the UK and Africa.
