A school held an indoor ‘street party’ to celebrate its 75th year.

Harrowby Infant School marked the milestone last week with the party. Staff made the food and the school held a non-uniform day.

The children made themselves anniversary hats which they decorated.

And each child was presented with a special Teddy bear, called Harrowby, to mark the anniversary. In the afternoon the school held games and races.

John Gibbs, who has been executive headteacher of both Harrowby Infant School and the National Junior School since they were federated in 2008, said: “We are a very happy school and the PTFC has worked tremendously hard to get the food and everything ready, and we have finished off with a few weeks of special events including the mid summer fair, culminating in this special party today.”

The school was formerly situated on a site in Castlegate, but the present school was opened in 1939 to cater 
for the children from the 
newly-built Harrowby 
estate.
