SUPER sleuths from across Scarborough and Filey pieced the clues together during an activity day at a college in the town.

The Year Ten pupils from St Augustine’s School, George Pindar Community Sports College, Scalby School and Filey School all took part in a fictional murder challenge at Scarborough Sixth Form College.

The students were tasked with catching the offender and spoke to four suspects who had been interviewed by policeman Chris Whitehead.

After interrogating their possible offenders, they then carried out blood type and finger print analysis to nail the killer.

Pupils also took part in an orienteering activity to discover facts and figures about the college and information on university.

Rebecca Noble, careers co-ordinator at St Augustine’s School, praised the event, saying: “Our students have really, really enjoyed it. 

“It was great fun and the sixth form staff were very helpful and friendly”.

Simon Smith, Head of Year Ten at Filey School, said: “The pupils very much enjoyed the day, particularly the crime scene investigation; some were a little squeamish about hearts and maggots but they got stuck in!”

Filey School pupil Emily Richardson added: “The activities outside on the field were awesome, including one where I had to sit on a plank and roll tubes.”
