Nine-year-old Callum Boldero spent weeks modelling the stage where the singer performed an open-air concert, and was congratulated on his efforts by Williams himself, who said on Twitter: “Now that’s genuinely epic – take a bow son.”

Students were guided around the park by schools ambassador for Legoland Jamie Lawrence, who first offered them the tour, taking in all the sights including a Lego model of Buckingham Palace.

Mr Lawrence said it was not just Callum’s stunning model, but the way in which the school used the building toy for educational purposes which convinced him to invite the children to the theme park.

He said: “I saw them on Twitter and offered them an opportunity to visit and also asked to get an insight into how they use Lego in the class.”
