Boys at the Barking Road school spent their PE lessons running a mile, while today they swapped their school uniform for something red.

The school also held their own ‘bake off’, where students and staff created their own sporting-themed cakes.

They were judged at lunchtime, with year 9 pupil Wadhatullah Zakie crowned student champion, and then sold off to raise even more money.

Food technology teacher Ruby Koomson said: “I am amazed at the standard of the cakes.

“Some of the boys have worked so hard on their presentation skills to make the cakes fit the sports theme.

“It was also good to see so many entries by staff and I’m sure the boys will enjoy eating them.”

The school have so far raised £500 and will add the cake sale proceeds to the total before handing it over to the charity.
