Broadoak Mathematics and Computing College invited people in to find out more about the school, in Windwhistle Road.

The mathematics department put on puzzles and games for prospective students and their parents while English tutors explored literature through the ages with a time machine theme.

Visitors were also able to sample dishes prepared by the food technology students, play African drums, try to solve a mystery in the drama studio and dress up for the photo booth in the foreign languages department.

The science faculty wowed guests with fire bubbles, rockets and heart dissection, while students played the piano throughout the night.
