THE new head girl and head boy at ORTU Hassenbrook Academy had their work cut out at their first big event during their “busiest ever” open evening.

Bailey Pumfleet, 15, from Corringham and Erin Lynas, 15, from Tilbury, gave speeches and led tours to 800 people.

Headteacher Ms Williams said: “The evening is a good way for prospective students and families to come along and learn about our school.”
