STAFF and students at Culcheth High School celebrated Pride Month in a successful manner.

The secondary school, off Warrington Road in Culcheth, marked LGBTQ+ History Month with a series of events across the week of June 19 to 23.

LGBTQ+ History Month and Pride Month are both held in June to coincide with the anniversary of the Stonewall riots.

Speaking to the Warrington Guardian, Culcheth High School said: "Students took part in Pride assemblies and a variety of Tutor Time activities, culminating on the Friday with all students being encouraged to wear coloured socks to school to show their support. 

"On the same day, a ‘Pride Bake Off’ took place, with all of the cakes being sold to raise money for the ‘Just Like Us’ charity, and with the winning submission being created by a Year 7 student. 

"Pride muffins were also provided by the school catering team to raise additional funds for our charity efforts, and the ‘CHS Pride Club’ hosted a celebratory lunchtime party."

Warrington's own Pride celebration took place on Saturday, June 24, and featured a number of scheduled events - including a DJ set by TV personality and radio host Fleur East, as well as an appearance by RuPaul's Drag Race ex-contestant Crystal.

The event was a free ticketed day, with all tickets being snapped up in advance.
