PREP and Pre-Prep pupils from Leehurst Swan School waited with bated breath to visit Santa’s Grotto again this year.

Their eyes shining with wonder and excitement, they were delighted by the prettiest, most sparkling grotto yet.

Santa sat in his rocking chair by the fireside and generously handed out presents and sweets.

The children were also entertained by members of Year 9, who were dressed as elves, Christmas trees, a reindeer, a Christmas pudding and even a cracker.
