RATTON Academy staged its Community Fair on Saturday, in association with Eastbourne AM Rotary Club and student Interact members.
Around 800 people are estimated to have visited during the day, and guest of honour at noon was Eastbourne MP Caroline Ansell.
The concept came from Ratton students, who carried out most of the work, inviting stall holders and publicising the event.
Ms Ansell said: “It was great fun and I very much enjoyed the fencing and Irish dancing demonstrations and the fabulous company of my host, Jemima Hadland who told me so much about the school while we ran into daleks and ghostbusters!”
AM manned its Shelter Box for the day.
