A tale of two buildings. The old and the new. The one below was opened in 1913 and has served the school well for 104 years. It has provided many fond memories for a lot of former pupils and staff. A fond farewell from all of us who passed through your hallowed gates.

Year Group Champions
We are still looking for more Year Group champions to organise reunions with their classmates.
We currently have 8 “champions” and would be keen to hear from more FPs, particularly from the 1970s onwards. We can give help and guidance on how to go about tracing former Year Group classmates.
