YOUNGSTERS from a Scarborough school have got moving into secondary education down to a tea after enjoying a cuppa to mark the occasion!

The Lindhead School pupils took part in a three day visit to Scalby School to find out more about what will happen when they make the big move in September.

The children were tasked with taking afternoon tea to the French during their visit and made cups in pottery lessons before enjoying cookery lessons to prepare the right cuisine.

Teacher Gillian Hardwick said the event was designed to give the children an early insight into life in secondary school and added they had thoroughly enjoyed their experience.

She said: “They absolutely loved it and they all feel a lot more confident about starting in September.

“It is all about helping them make the transition and they have definitely benefited from the experience.”
