Tardebigge CE First School is one of the earliest National Society schools dating back to 1815. To celebrate, the school enjoyed a week full of activities which commemorated the school’s history.

The School celebrated life at Tardebigge through the years with a whole school trip to the Black Country Museum, a WW2 lunch, afternoon tea for past and present pupils, staff and friends and a thanksgiving service with Bishop Graham Usher.

There is also a Facebook page “Memories of Tardebigge First School” on which people associated with the school both past and present could share their memories and add photographs.

The children of year 4 worked with a local historian and playwright to produce a play celebrating the life of the school and on  the afternoon of Thursday 9 July there was a vintage tea party followed by refreshments and a barbeque for all former pupils and their families.
