Some dressed up as their footballing icons, while others showed off their finest Disney princess dresses. The Enormous Crocodile was desperate for a bite to eat and Oompa Loompas could be seen at every turn.

Even teachers couldn’t help but join the fun, dressing up as the White Witch, the Mad Hatter and Snow White.
