A school became a sea of red as hundreds of pupils and teachers dressed up to raise money for Comic Relief.

Gospel Oak School’s 471 pupils wore the colour on Friday for Red Nose Day, as well as donning comical noses and over-sized glasses.

Their efforts raised £370.20 for the charity, which funds projects helping poor and disadvantaged people in the UK and abroad.

The school in Mansfield Road, Gospel Oak, also hosted after-school entertainment, with balloon making, face-painting and a bake sale in return for donations to the charity.

Business manager Claire Bailey said: “There was a lot of over-excitement, especially at the end of the day.”

She added: “There was lots of laughing, lots of screaming and chasing the entertainer around.”

Comic Relief has now raised more than £1billion since 1985.
