Held at Beechurst, the old grammar school hall, about 80 former grammar school pupils and four Staff met to mark the 300th anniversary of the foundation of the school.

Mr Armitage was one of the longest-serving headmasters. He held the position for 26 years until the school became comprehensive. He was principal speaker on Saturday.

Present warden of the village college, Mr Alan Bullock was there and there were also many new faces, including a lot of younger members.

Original documents relating to the school's history were on show and caused a lot of interest.
