On Friday, May 27, staff and students were delighted to welcome over 200 parents, carers and local dignitaries, including Andrew Selous MP and recently re-elected Mayor Councillor Farzana Kharawala, to a Jubilee Afternoon Tea.

Cream teas, cakes and refreshments were available as attendees enjoyed hearing the school choir sing three numbers from their recent appearance at the O2 Arena, London.

There was also an opportunity to tour the school and visit a diverse exhibition of students’ art, textiles, resistant materials and food technology work.

Deputy headteacher, Phil Stock, said: "Linslade School is committed to building strong connections with the local community and through our ongoing Classroom to Care Home initiative with Knolls care home, we were pleased to welcome a number of residents and staff.

"All those who attended were very complimentary about the event and the school's epic learning environment."

During the day students learnt about the Queen's 70-year reign and life of service to the country.

Each student was given a commemorative postcard to mark the occasion.
