Purbook Park school celebrates its centenary with events across the year

This year, our wonderful school will be 100 years old and we are planning some celebratory events to mark the occasion. We will be holding a Centenary Summer Fayre with performances from present and past pupils, picnics and stalls on Saturday 6th July 2024 on our school field from 11.30am until 3.30pm.

There will be craft and gift stalls, refreshments, entertainment and inflatable fun for all the family. We invite current and former pupils, along with friends and family, governors, trustees and local residents to come and join us - EVERYONE is Welcome!

The Mayor of Havant will be officially opening our Summer Fayre at 11.30am on Saturday 6th July and visiting our brand-new Centenary Study Centre to conduct an official opening for our pupils!

Alumni School Tours

In conjunction with this we are inviting former alumni to tour our school so that they can re-ignite old memories and see how the school has grown and developed over the years.

Tours will be taking place on Saturday 6th July, and we hope that everyone will stay for our Centenary Summer Fayre. If you would like to book a place on our school tour, please contact: [email protected]
