Cromer Academy celebrates 70 years

Cromer Academy is opening its doors for a free day of celebrations as it marks its 70th anniversary.

The former Cromer High School and Cromer Secondary Modern School will mark seven decades of educating the town’s young people with a special open event from 10am to 2pm on Saturday, July 6.

Staff, pupils, and families past and present are invited to come and meet old friends, share memories, and view an exhibition of school photos, uniforms, and memorabilia from across the school’s history.

Visitors will be able to tour the classrooms and corridors and discover how the building has changed and developed over the years.

Refreshments including classic cream teas will be on sale in the school canteen.

Headteacher Antony Little said: “Our staff, students, and buildings may have changed a lot over the last 70 years, but what remains the same is our proud role educating the young people of our community.

“We look forward to coming together for this special day as we celebrate our school’s rich history and bright future.”
