The celebrations continued with Ticcy Colling, the Chairman of Governors, planting a Cedar of Lebanon tree in Queen Elizabeth’s name to celebrate her time on the throne.

This tree has replaced one that was lost in the storms in 2010.

Pupils and staff were also able to enjoy a high tea in the school grounds and a full afternoon of entertainment for students of all age groups.
