Students at Spalding’s Sir John Gleed School took control of the curriculum for a day as English, maths and science were replaced by music, healthy eating and crime detection techniques.

The school held its second Alternative Learning Day of the year which saw Year Seven students focus on Fairtrade, designing posters and T-shirts as well as learning more about efforts to stop the exploitation of farmers and food producers worldwide.
Year Eight students had a choice of either studying dinosaurs or becoming detectives for the day to find the culprit behind an imaginary crime.
Other students learnt about the horrors of the Holocaust during World War II and how the brain works, as well as dance, drama and music with a Spanish theme.
