School to celebrate 30 years of education

A north Northumberland independent school, which will close this year after 30 years, will hold a celebration of its three decades of educating children in July.

The event at Rock Hall School will take place on the afternoon and evening of Saturday, July 6.

The school will perform Deep in the Jungle followed by a hog roast with live music.

There will be film and photographic displays of events throughout the 30 years in the main school.

All former pupils and staff of Rock, their families and friends are invited.

Contact the school office by telephone on 01665 579224 or email rockhalls chool@btinternet.com for further information.

The school was under threat in 2011 and parents vowed to fight to keep it open, which saw the nursery go from strength to strength, but there are not enough children to enable it to stay open next year.
