Grand Opening

Thursday September 22nd was the momentus day when our new building was officially opened by Rt Rev Richard Atkinson, the Bishop of Bedford.

The ceremony was attended by local dignitaries, Head teachers from nearby schools, representatives from Watson and Cox (who built the extension), the architect (Leon Delegate), the Mayor of Biggleswade (Councillor David Albone) and a number of key staff who have moved to other jobs or retired.

The afternoon started with a performance by the steel band which was followed by a speech by Mrs Reddick.  Bishop Richard spoke to us about his robes and the important figures depicted on his cope, including St Alban and John Bunyan.  Our school choir performed an anthem and then the school was officially opened by Bishop Richard.  The afternoon was concluded by guests being given a tour of the school, whilst the pupils enjoyed an hour of ‘golden time’ doing activities that the children themselves had chosen to do, ranging from Football and Frisbee, to art and board games.  The fantastic weather and wonderful behaviour of the children helped to make it a very special day.
