'Unofficial' opening ceremony
14th January 2019
Parents joined pupils and students for an unofficial opening ceremony at the end of the first week of lessons at the new site.
The foyer was packed for a ribbon-cutting ceremony ahead of an official opening, which is set to take place in June with a celebrity guest, local dignitaries and others who have worked so hard to help facilitate the move to the fantastic newly refurbished, redesigned and extended school.
The great, great, great grandson of the First School’s original headmaster Mr Fowler headed the ribbon-cutting party, which also included the current school’s youngest and oldest pupils, as well as Kevin Knibbs, a current member of the support staff who was in the first cohort of pupils educated on the Village College site.
