Young basketball fans had the chance to see top players in action on a trip to the national final.
Staff took 22 students to the Barclaycard Area, in Birmingham, for the Women’s and Men’s British League Cup finals.
The thrilling, end-to-end match saw Newcastle Eagles beat Glasgow Rocks 91-83 to secure their third successive title win.
Mr Bolton, who organised the trip, said: “It was a fantastic day for everyone. The students were brilliant and we’d all like to say a massive thank you to Mrs Russell for giving up her Sunday to be with us.”
