Henry Box School headteacher Nicola Edmondson said: “The pupils absolutely loved it.
“It was a really spectacular display and the rain stayed off until they landed.
“We took all the Year Seven students and they enjoyed it all tremendously.
“A lot of them wanted to get things signed by the guys that had jumped.”
