A SCHOOL is celebrating record profits from its summer fayre, which will go towards raising standards for its pupils.
Wilshere-Dacre in Hitchin raised £4,000 from the annual event.
The school, which was placed in special measures earlier this year, is hoping to use the money to invest heavily in new books to encourage reading. There are also plans for new iPads for the children.
Parents hope the effort will raise standards at the school.
“It’s an amazing total especially with the school being in special measures,” said Beth Fairchild, of Friends of Wilshere-Dacre School.

The fayre, which was opened by district councillor Judi Billing, featured performances by the school choir, cheerleaders and traditional country dancing as well as a circus skills workshop.
