The fancy dress day, which included a barbecue on the academy's field, marked the end of a long and intense exam session.

Student Sarah Richardson won an award for 'most-originally dressed' for her clown outfit, as did Jamie Currie who came as a Scottish piper.

Jamie went on to play Amazing Grace on the bagpipes.

Neil McShane, principal, said he was delighted with how the day went.
