A PRINCE helped plant a tree as part of a school's 70th anniversary celebrations yesterday (January 14).

HRH The Earl of Wessex, Prince Edward marked the birthday of Stewart Fleming Primary School in Witham Road, Anerley, which has recently turned its future around after being on special measures 20 months ago.

As part of the celebrations, a newly refurbished teaching block was also unveiled.

The block, named after school governor John Pepper, now has two computer suites, interactive whiteboards and projectors, new furniture and energy efficient fittings and insulation.

Bromley council paid out £60,000 towards the project.

Head teacher Lee Mason-Ellis said: "This is a great day for all of us at Stewart Fleming. Not only are we marking our school's 70th anniversary and our new teaching block, we are also celebrating the successful journey we have undertaken in the last 20 months from being a school in special measures to a good school with some outstanding features.

"The new learning environment is already showing an impact on children's learning with accelerated progress in Year 6 this term, with the ultimate aim of providing an outstanding environment at Stewart Fleming Primary School.
