Pupils from Pilsley Church of England Primary School delighted families and friends with a magical production of The Wizard of Oz at the Cavendish Hall, Edensor.

The Duchess of Devonshire watched a performance and commented on how well the children support and encourage one another.

The whole school took part, from reception to year 6. All the choreography was done by the children who also made their own props.

Headteacher Mrs Emma Bond said “The opportunities we are able to provide in terms of developing children’s self confidence, speaking and performance skills are incredible. Our children relish the opportunity to showcase their acting and musical skills and I am immensely proud of all of them. We are proud to be recognised as an ‘outstanding’ Church of England Primary School. We have exceptionally supportive parents and families and this friendly family atmosphere permeates throughout the school.”
