Whilst clearing out an old store area last month we found an interesting parcel that contained this framed World War 2 Medal "The 1939-1945 Star" The accompanying card explained that the medal was originally found in the early 1990's in the remains of former air raid shelters that were being demolished at the time.
The 1939-1945 star on display in our Key Stage 2 corridor.

The medal has been cleaned and re framed and is on display in Key Stage 2 Corridor next to the trophy cabinet and provides an interesting insight into our building's and the local area's history.
