Organised by the school’s Parents Association, pupils aged three to 11 from Barlborough Hall and their parents were joined by students who board at sister school Mount St Mary’s in Spinkhill.

Barlborough is an independent Catholic day school based in a Grade I listed 16th-century country house in Barlborough, near Chesterfield, Derbyshire.

Chair of the Barlborough Hall School Parents Association Jeanine Whyman said: “The fireworks night is always a popular event on the school calendar and this year was even more so.

“We were delighted to see so many people having a good night at the school for what turned out to be a spectacular firework display.”
