Tardebigge School Celebrates 200 years!13 Jul 2015 By Sam Setchell
Bishop Graham helped in a special service last week to mark the 200th anniversary of Tardebigge CE First School.
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.
