Celebrity glamour model Jodie Marsh and anti-bullying campaigner Alex Holmes visited Springwell College in Staveley.

The pair were at the school to film a documentary which is set to be screened on Channel Five on April 11.

Springwell was chosen as it has a Good Practice Award for its anti-bullying work and over 25 anti-bullying ambassadors were trained by Alex at Springwell last year.

Jodie and Alex met with the school’s ambassadors and had a tour of the school to see the work they do.

The next day the ambassadors set off to Carlton College in Barnsley to meet Jodie and Alex and stage an assembly about bullying.

With a film crew and an audience of over 250 students, Springwell’s ambassadors shone; performing a play and a poem.

The next day Carlton’s headteacher and their new trainee ambassadors went to Springwell for workshops run by Alex and Jodie and several students were interviewed for the television show.
