Mowden School's 50th Anniversary

Mowden School opened in the Autumn of 1970, with the official, ceremonial opening taking place on the 18th December. That means it is our school's 50th birthday!
Raymond Shaw was the original headteacher, who then became head of the junior school in September 1972 when that building opened. He retired in 1989. Age 94 he still lives locally and his son recently sent us this programme from the 1970 opening as well as a photograph from his retirement. These are great mementoes from the early days of our school.
