The event was held at One and was part of an ongoing government led campaign to make students aware of British values.

Around 50 students and staff went along and were suitably dressed in union flags and Royal masks.

The party was organised by the foundation learning department. Teacher Nicki Yucel, said: “I’m a big supporter of the royal family and we wanted to have a themed garden in our sensory garden. Everyone came along in their red, white and blue. It was a lovely afternoon.”

Nicki is off to Windsor on Saturday to watch all the pomp and ceremony of the wedding unfold as a spectator. She added: “I’m a big fan of Harry and Meghan,”
