Elf Day was an opportunity for students and staff to dress up on the last day of term. They were asked to pay £1 to come to school in elf outfits and Christmas attire.

“The day created a real buzz around school, spreading great Christmas spirit while promoting this important charity. It was a fun yet reflective day for all involved,” said Jack Geary, one of the organisers.
Events on the day included the Great Christmas Tupton Bake-off which saw students put their baking skills to the test. The cakes made a tempting display and were snapped up by hungry customers at lunchtime.
Talent was also on show at a Christmas concert. Students of all ages - and some staff - performed festive songs, told jokes and played musical instruments to an appreciative audience.
“All of these charitable events combined to raise over £2,100… an incredible amount for the Children’s Hospital Charity. It was one of the highest fundraising totals in school history,” said George Marriott, who also helped organise the event.
“The Children’s Hospital Charity is close to our hearts here at Tupton Hall School because we have several students who have been received care at Sheffield Children’s Hospital.”
