CHURCHFIELDS Academy celebrate their 50th birthday this year and are looking for past and present students to help them mark the date.

They are looking for former students to send in their photographs, anecdotes and memories of the school as part of a memory wall.

Esther Newman, who is leading the project, said: “I am preparing a memory wall ready for the celebrations to begin in September and am looking for any old photographs, uniforms or any other artefacts connected to Churchfields’ past.

“Churchfields has had a fantastic journey and I have been lucky enough to work here for almost 10 of those years.

“We have also had some very famous ex-students including David Howell, Lesley Ann Skeates, Heidi Alexander and Jon Lewis. It would be good to know what other fields ex-students have gone on to be successful in and celebrate their success on our memory wall.”

Those looking to get involved with the project should contact Esther on 01793 427742 or email
