Students from Sir John Thursby Community College, Burnley, got the chance to take over the town’s Holiday Inn Express as part of an educational initiative.

Sixteen students from Years 9 and 10 took on a variety of jobs at the hotel, from manning reception, being a chef and general manager.

Each pupil had to apply for the role they wanted and go through an interview.
