Balliol Lower School is 60!

This year Balliol Lower School is celebrating its 60th anniversary. To mark this milestone, pupils from Years 3, 4 and Year 5, visited Balliol College, in Oxford, earlier this month. Balliol College were also celebrating their own special milestone – their 750th anniversary!

 

Kylie Storey, Head teacher, at Balliol Lower School, said: “We hope that our young pupils will use this experience to enhance their learning and give them, and their peers, high aspirations for the future.”

 

Cllr Henry Vann, Portfolio Holder for Education at Bedford Borough Council, said: "The visit to Balliol College will hopefully inspire these children’s appetites for learning. Congratulations to everyone at Balliol Lower School, and - of course - many happy returns!”

 

As Balliol Lower School students continue to learn more about the school's past they have decided to prepare a '1950’s Day' at the end of this term. Other events planned are a traditional harvest and Christmas service, a fireworks evening, a concert and a re-enactment of the school opening service.

 

So that everyone with a connection to the school can join in on the celebrations, staff at the school are seeking former pupils, or former members of staff, to get in touch via email at office@balliolschool.co.uk

 

The school also has a Balliol Jubilee facebook page -  where pupils from previous years’ have been uploading photos and other memorabilia, so as to share their memories. To view the site visit www.facebook.com (Balliol-Lower-School-Jubilee)
