A Derbyshire pupil had a rare opportunity to do what other pupils everywhere can only dream of.

Conner Robinson, 11, won the chance to swap places with his head teacher for the day at St Wystan's School, Repton.

His parents bid for him to take the place of his regular head, Phil Soutar, in a charity auction.

The youngster said his highlights included taking assembly, signing the school newsletter and being allowed in the staff room.
