1960s Day has been a huge success, staff and children all dressed in 60s costumes and we had a very special assembly this morning when we welcomed Margaret Wickham to school. Margaret was the first head of the infants school when it opened in 1963. She was thrilled to be back at school and very impressed by the people she met and everything she saw. Margaret answered questions posed by some of the children to give the whole school a flavour of what it was like in 1963 as school opened for the first time. She declared Grove Vale to be 'very' outstanding and wished us all well for the rest of the week.
