The second annual Pride Day was held at Saffron Walden County High School on Friday, February 4 to promote awareness of the human rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.
The event, organised by sixth formers, included a bazaar with merchandise on sale with the rainbow symbol.
Among the speakers was Tom Brown, a human rights lawyer and a speaker from Stonewall and two former pupils, Lucy Skerratt and Alex Barnes.
Tom, Lucy and Alex took part in a discussion and a question and answer session with staff and students.
The day was organised by Heidi Quill, Molly Govus and Caelum Spearing.
Heidi said: “The day really did mean a lot to all of us at Saffron Walden County High.
“Our school is becoming friendlier and friendlier to its attendees everyday.
“This is the second year that we have held a pride day and we hope next year’s will be even bigger and better.”
