Students in Year 10 took part in CPR training during Restart a Heart Day which this year took place on October 16.

The training on the day was provided by the Yorkshire Ambulance Service and was sponsored by the British Heart Foundation.

Restart a Heart Day is a Europe-wide day aimed at teaching secondary school children how to perform life-saving cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) skills.

In 2014 50 schools across Yorkshire and the Humber took part in a single day and delivered training to more than 11,000 students.

This year 30,000 students and teachers were taught.
