Big birthday celebrations

The 20th anniversary of the Lower School at Ellesmere College was celebrated with a special tea and a letter of congratulations from the Princess Royal. Princess Anne, accompanied by Shropshire’s Lord Lieutenant Algernon Heber-Percy, officially opened the Shropshire college’s Lower School 20 years ago and the 20-year anniversary letter from the Princess was given pride of place at the celebrations.

The afternoon tea, which took place on Friday 15 November, welcomed former heads, present pupils, teachers and guests, with music provided by the Lower School Orchestra. A junior section has been in place at the college for more than 50 years, but it was not until 1999 that a dedicated building and play area was created on the site.

Lower School head Sharon Owen said, “It was a memorable celebration to mark our 20th anniversary. It was lovely to see so many people there, the tea was amazing, enjoyed by all and everyone wanted a look at the letter from the Princess Royal.”
