  The lower sixth form general studies students had submitted the questions beforehand on topics including cuts in university grants.

  Pupils had spent the last half of the term with deputy headmaster Paul Harrison looking at politics and the way national and local governments worked.

  They also went through the role play of being in local government and having to decide what cuts to make in their spending.

  Mr Abbott said: “Questioning by sixth formers is always the most rigorous.”

  In 1995 memories of World War Two, both grim and cheerful, were revived by Ulverston Victoria High School’s production of Dried Eggs and Spam.

  The production involved pupils of all ages from the school and was, said The Mail, performed with skill and exuberance.

  The show included scenes from The Diary of Anne Frank, which had their own tragic message, and Return to the City, a story based on Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. The pupils also recited poems of the period and well-known wartime songs, such as Lili Marlene, and there were dance passages and the able performance of the Furness Youth Big Band.

  The characters sported costumes of the period and there was a traditional chorus girl line-up.

  The show, held in December, was at the lower school in Hart Street, Ulverston, with tickets priced at £3 for adults and £2 for children.

  Also in 1995, Ulverston Victoria High School enjoyed success at the Furness Festival of Youth Theatre.

  The school’s performance of Domestic Bliss, an A-Level theatre study piece, won best production in the 15-plus category, best devised piece, best set and the festival shield for best in the festival.
