1. Come to school dressed down!

Non-uniform days are a total classic. Go to school wearing your own clothes, or come up with some fancy dress fundraising ideas, choose a theme and get everyone involved!

2. Sell Your Skillset

Whether you’re a nail art expert, hairstylist or face painter – become an entrepreneur for the day and charge your friends a few quid for a SPOTacular makeover. You could even hold a charity fashion show and give out rosettes – or think of your own fancy dress prize ideas.

3. Get Your Teachers Involved

Who doesn’t love seeing their teachers look silly? We definitely do!

Sponsor your teachers to dress up in their PJs or best spotty outfit, or pay to vote for the best charity fancy dress looks across all staff.
