Tanks, tours and teas were all part of the fun as a West Norfolk primary school celebrated its 100th anniversary.

Past and current pupils of Ten Mile Bank, who are aged between four and 91, enjoyed a special celebration laid on to mark the centenary.

An estimated 300 people enjoyed tours of the school, which was originally built to be a hospital but was never used for that purpose, along with looking at some memorabilia, including diaries and registers.

School governor Ray Houghton attended the school and shared his experiences of his role as coal boy. There were also a variety of First World War memorabilia including a tank. Staff members Maria Higgins and Leah Herbert ran a Victorian-themed café where they served tea, scones and cake. Teacher Olivia Petherick said: “It was a fantastic family day for everyone around Ten Mile Bank.”
