This year marks the centenary year of Huntingtower Community Primary Academy and to celebrate the school will be holding a summer festival for staff and pupils, past and present.

Huntingtower opened its doors back in September 1914, with just 25 pupils and three rooms.

The land on which it was built belonged to Lord Huntingtower, which is where the school’s name first came from.

Today, the primary school has been converted into an academy and over the past 100 years had seen many famous pupils including former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.

Professor Valerie Gibson, a professor of physics at Cambridge University, also used to attend the school and now spends her time exploring how the universe was created.

The school is looking to get in touch with any of its past pupils who are interested in taking part in the centenary celebrations this summer.

The summer festival is due to be held on July 18 and will feature a special display of old school photographs, along with a meet and greet with the oldest ex-pupil who attended the school.

Also planned for the event will be various entertainment including a bouncy castle, face painting, tombolas, competitions, live music, and dance demonstrations - along with a massive barbecue, refreshments, homemade cakes and plenty of sweets for the kids.

If you are an ex-pupil of the school and are interested in getting involved in the centenary celebrations, get in touch with the school via e-mail at enquiries@huntingtowerroad.lincs.sch.uk or you can telephone 01476 564291.
