Cedars Upper School reaches a significant milestone on Monday (April 26) as it celebrates 100 years since it first opened its doors.

The school launched as The Cedars on the historic site in Church Square, now Leighton Middle School, and moved to its current site on Mentmore Road in 1973.

Headteacher since 2011, Steven Palmer, said: “We are immensely proud of our school and its history and are looking forward to celebrating our anniversary with the community, including many of our past students, parents and teachers, once the Covid restrictions have been lifted.”

Students and staff are planning a summer extravaganza on Saturday, July 3 to celebrate the school's history and achievements over the past decades, and the whole community is invited.

There will be an archive of memorabilia including photographs, uniforms and documents held by the school and donated by the schools’ alumni. The ever-popular craft fayre will also return and there will be musical and sporting performances, activities for children along with stalls and refreshments.

If you would like to showcase any of your memorabilia from Cedars, have a stall on the day or get involved with the planning, please email [email protected]
