Pupils, staff and parents collected 693 items for the food bank, arriving at the bank in person to drop off the food.

Deputy principal Andy Grant said: ‘It was very humbling to see the range of donations and generosity; not only from our own students and staff, but also the wider Gosport community.

‘It is great to see the active role our learners have played in supporting such a wonderful local resource for those in need at this time of year.’
