Caistor Grammar School has celebrated the opening of a new building, which is set to inspire students for years to come.

Performing the official opening of the Olympic Torch Building was Baroness Sue Campbell, chairman of UK Sport and Youth Sport Trust.

Baroness Campbell praised the School for its record of success as a Sports College in the past.

The name of the new building comes from the remarkable fact that no fewer than five then current Caistor Grammar School students carried the Olympic Torch last summer as it made its way around the country ahead of the London Games.

And for one student - Jordan Duckitt - there was also the honour of lighting the Olympic Cauldron. Jordan and the other Caistor Grammar School torch bearers - Alice Kaye, Thomas Paine, Kate Pattison and Joseph Hewitt - were all present to see the naming of the building.

“We are really proud of our new beautiful building and thank everyone involved in this celebration,” said Headmaster, Roger Hale.

“Its naming will, we hope, inspire a generation of Caistor Grammar School students to excel and contribute in our community.”
