Pupils, staff and governors celebrated the Golden Jubilee this afternoon with cakes, drinks and a special whole school 50th anniversary photograph on the Key Stage 2 playground. After school, PTA members served cakes and drinks for families as the beautiful Autumn sunshine was enjoyed by everyone.
Wheatcroft school opened fifty years ago on the 9th September 1968 with 146 pupils on roll. There were just five teachers and five classes and Miss Kathleen Nilson was the Headteacher. In September 2018, we have seven classes, 208 pupils with over thirty staff working at the school!
Thanks to our school caretaker Mr Hanson for climbing the ladders on to the school roof for the wonderful photographs!
The Jubilee day started with a wonderful double rainbow over the school which was photographed by Mrs Kirby.
