The children and staff were joined by various visitors including the Diocesan Director of Education, the architect from DB Lawrence, the builders Johnson Smith, local priest the Rev Stuart Hadley, the Bishop’s visitor Mrs Cora Townson, as well as headteachers from the Affinity Partnership and parents and friends.
Headteacher Sally-Anne Caunter said: “It was a lovely day. We had a service in the hall beforehand where the children did their presentation of the history of the school.”
