The murder mystery event saw students act out a scenario for their peers to guess who had committed the crime.

Year 8 Students and teachers played the parts of murder suspects, reading out statements and answering questions along the way.
Ella Brady, drama and music teacher and head of Cockcroft House, said: "We want to be as inclusive as possible for our house events and not just cater for one type of interest. So, we came up with something a little different.
"I had seen successful murder mystery type activities on online theatre groups and thought this would be great to bring to our school and engage a lot of students."
Moore and Cheshire houses both guessed correctly that the victim's ex wife was to blame for the killing.
