Fairground stalls, yoga workshops and a climbing wall were just a few of the events on offer as Bromley High School continued their 130th birthday celebrations.

A community festival, held at the school in Blackbrook Lane, raised money for the Majorie McClure School, in Chislehurst, through a series of activities organised by staff and pupils on June 7.

The sports department ran a sports day for Year 5 pupils and other local primary schools, which included rounders, long jump and sprinting.

Elsewhere, the art department provided face painting and potato printing alongside Year 9 pupils, while the design and technology staff organised the popular ‘Sponge the Teacher’ stall.

Others stalls on the day sold Kent produce, such as jewellery and beauty treatments, and parents were treated to a Pimms tent - with all proceeds going to the school’s Floodlights Appeal.

Head teacher, Louise Simpson, said: “It was wonderful to be able to welcome primary school children from Bickley, Bromley, Raglan Primary, and St Mark’s Church of England schools to Bromley High for our 130th Anniversary Festival.

“Well done to all involved and happy birthday Bromley High.”
