Pinchbeck East school's big celebration after half a century in Fennell Road building




Pupils, staff and parents had a huge celebration for the 50th anniversary of the opening of Pinchbeck East Primary School’s premises in Fennell Road.

The school opened a month before Apollo 11 astronaut Neil Armstrong set foot on the Moon - and the cultural revolution known as the Swinging Sixties was at its height.

Year 6 pupils and their teachers donned the fashions of the time, there were 50 activities for pupils to enjoy and, for some, the chance to research the school’s history, including a visit to its former site, now the village library.

"It's got the community at its heart. We have tried to maintain our village school philosophy of being a part of the community, going out into the community and welcoming the community into the school."
