WHAT a way to spend your last day at school.

The fun-loving Year 11 students at Manor College of Technology, in Hartlepool, swapped their uniforms for this quirky variety of fancy dress costumes.

The Mario brothers, Batman, Superman, and a pirate were just some of the characters who turned up for the school’s annual Year 11 leavers’ lunch.

Staff organise the light-hearted gathering for the leaving students every year ahead of the half-term break and before the majority of the GCSE exams get underway.

And it’s obviously a popular choice with the students as dozens made the effort to get dressed up and made the most of their final school memories.
