A spoooktacular Halloween ‘Ghoul school’ staged at Wisbech Grammar School saw more than 120 plucky youngsters and their parents enjoy a torchlit tour of the darker sides of the historic school.
The School, founded by the Wisbech Guild of the Holy Trinity in 1379, is one of the oldest schools in the country. Located in Harecroft House on the historic Georgian North Brink, the setting provided the ideal backdrop for terrifying tours taking in basements and winding staircases, and tales of ghosts that stretch back as far as the 1700s.
The sell-out event, now in its fifth year, sent shivers down the spine of the bravest this Halloween. Pupils in creepy costume, styled by the School’s Technical Theatre Manager, Mrs Susan Duncan, and mortifying make-up supplied by school play director Miss Alison Clayton and expertly applied by the School’s talented Sixth Form team who used their skills to provide ghostly thrills.
Games for all ages were supplied and run by the School’s Young Enterprise Club. The event was topped off with a fearsome feast of hot dogs, pumpkin soup, apple cake and washed down with a blood red brew of cranberry juice, fruit juices and spices.
Mrs Alison Sloan, Head of Food and Nutrition at the school, said: “This annual event is now a sell-out and great fun and allows our pupils to showcase their delicious homemade food.”
