Image Description

9th September 2019 — During the holidays we were delighted to receive confirmation that our Guinness World Records™ attempt was a resounding success!

Mrs Wingfield is pictured with some of our participants who took part in the whole school challenge on the School field back in June, when 628 sock puppets were held aloft for the required one minute as the school danced along to music and celebrated together in a memorable joint effort.

Thank you to everyone who helped The Blue Coat School become a new Guinness World Record holder!
