School throws open doors for centenary
7:00am Monday 16th September 2013 in News
BRENTWOOD County High School is set to celebrate 100 years of education this year - by throwing open its doors to former staff and students .
An Open School event on October 5 will launch a year of celebrations, with the school opening its doors for an afternoon to anyone who has an interest in it.
Headteacher Stephen Drew said: “We are hoping many people from Brentwood and beyond who spent their school days here, or who have worked here in the past, will take this opportunity to come back to school to relive old memories.
“Current staff and students will be on hand from 2pm to 5pm to show people around.
“We hope we will hear many interesting stories about life at the school over the years, and allow people to recapture the special memories of their days at BCHS.”
During the afternoon there will be an exhibition of paintings by the late Jean Alexander, who was head of art from 1936 to 1972.
Current students’ photographic and artwork will also be on display along with items from the school archives.
Members of the local community have also been invited to view the school and join in the celebrations.
If you can’t make that day, contact the school to arrange a visit on another day by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01277 238900.
