A spokeswoman said: “All boys that participated worked hard and put lots of effort into preparing the Harvest Baskets. Liam Nottingham, Josh Ward, Jayden Thorpe, Tyler Carlton-Smith, Curtis Brown and Tom Bradshaw represented the school fantastically.

“Getting kids growing their own fruit and vegetables teaches them where food comes from and the importance of eating healthily, and by giving them out to local people helps to build community spirit.”

“The staff and residents were very appreciative of the fresh veg they received.”
