Police called to school as beginners DJ class turns into rave

15 March 2017

Why didn’t they have these classes while we were at school?

Police in Nottingham were called to Rushcliffe School last weekend, as a beginners DJ class being held there escalated into a full-blown rave.

Officers descended on the scene at around 3:30 AM, as following a three hour teaching session on mixing, revellers began turning up with “glow sticks and cans of Red Stripe”.

The fire brigade were also called to the scene as the opportunistic students set off the school’s fire alarm systems. Reportedly by 2AM 250 people had turned up.

Rushcliffe School headteacher, Steve Lewis, said, 
“Sadly staff were not on side, the person was known to them. They were given the responsibility and that responsibility was placed in the wrong hands.

“We were absolutely mortified by it. It is nothing that the school would ever want to be connected with, or Field Sports Management. We are part of the community and want to support it and be good residents.”
