A Kettering school is celebrating its 40th anniversary this term.
St Thomas More School, in Northampton Road, was opened in 1973 and was extended in 2003.
Today (Friday, October 4) past head teachers and school governors were invited to a celebration event and meal at the school.
Head teacher Anne O’Neill said: “We are very fortunate to have three former head teachers here today.
“We also extended the invitation to ex-staff and governors who could come along and about 50 of us are gathered here today.
“We had a special mass this morning and then we came back to the school to relax and reminisce.”
The school is planning a number of events later in the year to further celebrate the milestone.
