Archbishop Temple Church of England High School in Fulwood is celebrating its 60th birthday.

A family fun day will take place to mark the special occasion. The event will take place on Saturday 15 June from 10am – 4pm on the school grounds. 

Headteacher of the school Mr Catlow said: “60 years marks an exciting time for our school. Archbishop Temple has always been at the centre of our community and it is the community that has seen the school grow from strength to strength, the amazing achievements of our pupils being testament to that. 

“I am extremely excited about the planned celebration for our birthday and look forward to a wonderful event and seeing our families and friends enjoying the day.”

While Justine Sumner, Chair of the school’s PTA and organiser of the event added: “We are really excited about the event. We’ve got a fantastic range of activities planned from fairground rides to inflatables, a makers and crafts market, live music and entertainment, dance displays, a food and drink court and the amazing Des Grant will be spinning some tunes throughout the day to get everyone into the party spirit!

“Everyone is welcome to attend the event, pupils past and present. We think it will appeal to our alumni but it really is open to everyone who attends the school and families within the local community.”

DJ Des Grant will be in charge of music while there’ll also be a kids’ zone, fairground rides, face painting and inflatables.
