Strictly Come Haddenham


STAFF, children and professional dance celebrity Brendan Cole strutted their stuff at an energetic celebration of 150 years of Haddenham St Mary’s CE Primary School.

At the same event, last month, a new wing of the school, complete with four new classrooms was opened. Karen Collett, the headteacher, said: “We had a wonderful time. We had lots of guests. We invited everyone involved in the build, former staff and dignitaries.”
