A Puma helicopter also touched down, as part of the day dedicated to learning about science, technology, engineering and maths.

Every student and every member of staff was out on the school field to welcome both the parachutists and chopper.

Tudor Grange Primary Academy Perdiswell is built on the site of an old airfield used by the RAF in WW2 as a training facility.

Hollywood film star Clark Gable was co-pilot on board a US plane which crashed there in 1942.

Gable survived the crash and resumed his career as a leading film star after the war.
