Pupils took part in activities during an extended tutor period, including a history quiz, viewing archive photos of the original construction of buildings, plus a video looking back on 60 years of pupil achievements.

There were opportunities through break and lunchtime to attend a 1960s-style tuck shop, plus ice cream vans and a free Student ‘60 Prize’ Lucky Draw.

The draw, a student suggestion, was possible thanks to several local organizations who contributed the 60 prizes on offer.

And as well as its Student Celebration Day, the school decided to look ahead to its 100th anniversary in 2063 with a Time Capsule Ceremony.

The capsule contained various memorabilia, including a letter and a video message from headteacher, David Ramsden, to be unveiled in 40 years.

The time capsule also contained letters written by current pupils, items from the Covid pandemic, photos and important historic documents, including the official opening certificate.

Pupils past and present, along with Mr Ramsden, filled the time capsule and sealed it during the ceremony.
