Pupils and teachers were dressed in the spirit of the day for All Saints’ Day at an Exmouth primary school.

Children and teachers donned the clothes worn by a range of different saints as part of the Christian festival.

The different costumes ranged from St George, the patron saint of England to St Francis, the patron saint of animals.

Some also dressed as Mary and Joseph, who the school is named after.

As part of the day, 200 children and adults walked from the school, Regents Gate, in their saint outfits, across to the Holy Ghost Church, in Raddenstile Lane.

Acting head teacher Nicola Bashford-Taylor said: “The children had a great day doing their work dressed as saints.

“It was quite a sight seeing 200 Saints walking along the road.”
