Students and staff at Medina House School on the Isle of Wight have done their bit for Mountbatten, by putting their "own spin" on the hospice's flagship fundraiser, Walk the Wight.

Accompanied by teachers, pupils from the school's two sites, set off from School Lane, Newport this morning (Tuesday).

In total, more than 100 of the school community made their way to Medina Arboretum, near Seaclose Park.

While there, they stopped off for a spot of lunch, before heading back to the school again.

Their walk formed part of Walk the Wight, which this weekend saw thousands of Islanders take part for charity, Mountbatten.

Chris Berry, headteacher at Medina House, said: "This is a legacy event that the school has been involved in for many years recognising the fantastic work of the hospice.

"This is us putting our spin on it really and making sure the children can still participate, along with staff as well".

Medina House, which supports children with special educational needs, was recently handed a 'good' rating by Ofsted.

Inspectors concluded the school is 'a happy place to be.'

Students and staff are also raising money for the hospice.

They hope to award pupils for their valiant efforts, with a Walk the Wight medal each.
