A small and happy school ... that was how Wormegay Primary was described in January 1974.

There were just 48 pupils in two classes, which made for a cheerful and friendly atmosphere.

In addition, the school was used for a lot of social functions.

The school dated back to 1839, at the beginning of Queen Victoria’s reign, but there was nothing Victorian about the modern equipment and facilities.

The head teacher at the time was Mr D H R Watkins, who said the only thing lacking was a school playing field, although the county authorities were negotiating for some land.
