The event was staged for the benefit of children from Fairstead’s Churchill Park School in King’s Lynn.

Glebe’s oldest pupils partnered with nine children who have special needs to ensure they enjoyed a special day of entertainment at the Norfolk attraction.

The session forms part of Glebe’s Div VIII Leavers’ Programme, a half-term of activities and events following the completion of common entrance examinations, to celebrate their time at Glebe.

Many of this year’s Div VIII pupils have been at Glebe since the age of three.

The event with Churchill Park School was organised by Kathy Chalk, a Lady Taverner and parent of one of Glebe’s Div VIII pupils.

Glynis Billett, chairman of the Lady Taverners Norfolk Region said: “Working with the support of Churchill Park School and Pensthorpe, we were delighted to be able to bring the two groups of children together.

“We aimed to create a fantastic day for Churchill Park School’s children, many of whom have had a challenging start to life.

“These fun days are always full of laughter – all the Norfolk Lady Taverners really look forward to this special day out and we very much hope this will be the start of an ongoing relationship between the two schools.”

“We are extremely grateful to Kathy and the Lady Taverners for their lead in bringing this event about,” said Glebe House School’s headmaster, John Crofts.

“This is a superb opportunity for our children to give back something to the community around us and engage with children whose childhoods are inevitably very different from their own.

“We look forward to the event immensely.”
