Stockport Academy Christmas Market Kicks Off Festive Season In Style

Our annual indoor Christmas Market was the biggest and best yet this year – with an appearance from some very special four-legged guests!

For the first time ever, two of Santa’s reindeer visited our school. Dasher and Cupid spent the day meeting and greeting guests in the Sports Hall alongside our humongous chocolate tombola, which featured over 900 prizes up for grabs!

Elsewhere, Santa’s grotto welcomed hundreds of visitors as the big man himself pulled up in his sleigh, while the Stockport Academy Choir and Steel Band entertained visitors throughout the day with some festive performances.

We hosted over 50 stalls, which were selling everything from Christmas wreaths and wood carvings to baubles and gifts. Even the Grinch was spotted browsing the atrium and posing for photos!

Our refectory was transformed into a festive food court - selling bratwurst and hot chocolate – with guests treating themselves to a bite to eat as children bounded around a Christmas-themed bouncy castle.

Mr Prince, who organised the Christmas Market, said: “It was brilliant to see so many people turn out to come and see our market and it is a real highlight of the Stockport Academy calendar.”

“We had an absolutely amazing day and I would like to thank all of our staff and students who gave up a portion of their weekend to bring a little bit of Christmas magic to Cheadle Heath.”
