They wore tiaras and played Land of Hope and Glory at Whitehall School in Somersham on Friday to mark the Queen's 80th birthday.

A giant sponge cake with a jam and cream filling, made by Tom's Cakes of Somersham, was iced with the Union Flag and decorated with a crown, orb and sceptre.

It was big enough for all 103 pupils to have a piece, plus the school staff and several of the parents who arrived to take their children home.

Pictured enjoying the royal occasion are Sophie, Genevieve, Tom, Lucy, Benjamin and Alice.
