It was the first leavers evening the special school at the Burnley Campus in Barden Lane has been able to hold for two years due to the Covid pandemic.

Katie Wood, from the school, said: “We want to say a huge thank you to everyone who made is possible. It was an incredible turnout and the pupils and their families had a wonderful time.

"We want to say thank you to Eventfully Yours and Alice Aspinall who donated one of her beautiful floral backdrops for our event. Alice gave up her time to come and set it all up for us and we got some beautiful pictures in front of it.
