The fair, at Priory Community School in Queensway, coincided with World Nurses Day, which takes place on the anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth – on May 12.

Students went along after school to take each other’s blood pressure and bandage pretend wounds with the help of North Somerset Community Partnership (NSCP) nurses.

Jenny Turton, director of people and organisational development at the NSCP, said: “Nurses Day is an important event for NSCP’s nurses and as well as celebrating the achievements of our current staff, it is an opportunity to share the career of nursing with students.

“We have tried to make the day as fun as possible by making it interactive, but using the actual kind of activities you would really find yourself doing in a healthcare role.”
