A day for women across the world was marked at Sidmouth’s international boarding school last Friday.

St John’s headmaster Simon Larter opened International Women’s Day with levity, before encouraging students to consider the way women are treated across the world.

The day finished with a netball match between the female staff and the senior girls that the students took, eight points to six.
