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,”

Student, Luke Thurlow, said: “A royal wedding doesn’t come around very often so it’s exciting.”
