FOUR pupils of National School visited London on Friday to take part in a church service marking the bicentenary of The National Society.

The National School in Grantham was one of the first to be founded by the society and is one of the few in the country to have retained the name.

The society continues to provide support to nearly 5,000 Church of England schools around the country.

Deputy headteacher Kay Sutherland took pupils Isabel Setchell, Thomas Casey, Robert Singer and Lily Walker to London to attend the celebratory service at Westminster Abbey.

As well as attending the service, pupils were able to enjoy a sightseeing tour of London.

They also had the chance to look around the historic cathedral, where they found the tomb of one of Grantham’s most famous people, the world-renowned physicist Sir Isaac Newton.
