Academy wants ex-pupils to help celebrate 50th anniversary

NUNTHORPE Academy is calling former students, their families and teachers to action as it celebrates its 50th anniversary.

It wants to set up exhibitions of memorabilia from across the five decades it has been in operation and is appealing for help. The academy wants people to dig out old photographs, films, uniforms, sports kit, old workbooks, and certificates or let it know of any significant memories they have of their days at Nunthorpe.

The school-turned-academy has grown and developed since it first opened in 1963. Today it has 1,467 students on its books

It will be holding a series of events including a celebration night on January 24, a summer fair and a number of open days, where people will be invited to tour the premises. Principal, Debbie Clinton, said: "This is an exciting year for Nunthorpe and we want to celebrate how the academy has grown and developed and how it has helped shape young people's lives as well as contributing to the wider community. "We want to involve as many people as possible in our celebrations and alumni, former staff and everyone in the community are invited to share photographs, memories, visit classrooms and reconnect with their days at the school."

Anyone with memorabilia should contact Karen Deen on 01642 310561 extension 149 or email
