Swanmore School celebrates its 50th

College in running for top national awards

Have your say

A SCHOOL celebrating its 50th anniversary this year is looking for former pupils.

The Parents’ Association of Swanmore College of Technology wants to mark the event by compiling a fundraising book of pictures and stories from past pupils and staff.

Helen Pottle, from the association, said: ‘Were you one of the first 286 pupils that entered the school that day in 1961? Or did you attend Swanmore in the years that followed?

‘The school is interested in all and any stories, from people who worked here – the building and how it has changed – productions or what was happening at the school during key national dates.

‘We would especially like to know what you are doing now and how far some of them have travelled. This will be shared with current pupils to give them an appreciation of the school’s history and perhaps inspire them.’
