The headteacher, Christopher Todd, said: “The week was a true celebration of the best of the school and brought together pupils, staff and friends of the school from past and present.

“My thanks to all who supported this anniversary and particularly to the steering group who led the organisation of this memorable week.”

The Duchess of Richmond visited for the picnic and children received a commemorative mug and tea towel.

An exhibition of archived photographs and documents was exhibited in Singleton village hall, put together by former pupil Diane Snow.

There was a service of thanksgiving at Singleton Church on Thursday – the actual anniversary – followed by a dinner at The Fox Goes Free.

A group also created the Singleton Scrapbook, a collection of photographs, memories and archives of the past 50 years.
