Bookworms were charged with coming into school dressed as their favourite characters from the world of fiction, with some spectacular results.

Organised by teachers – who were themselves dressed in Dr Seuss-style The Cat in the Hat costumes – the day saw colourful appearances all round.

Roaming the school were Harry Potter wizards, St Trinian’s schoolgirls, Disney creations, swashbuckling Robin Hoods and inconspicuous Where’s Wallys.

But some unorthodox costumes also caught the eye including a Smurfette painted from head to toe in blue paint, an evergreen Luigi and even a washing machine.
