A reunion is being organised to celebrate a sixth form’s 20th anniversary.

During the past two decades, William Farr C of E Comprehensive in Welton has seen about 2000 students pass through its sixth form, with more than 50 students taking up places at Oxbridge.

To mark the milestone occasion, all former sixth formers are invited to join current and former teachers and staff at an event on Saturday, October 10 .

The school is particularly keen to find musical former pupils who would be prepared to perform at the reunion.

The event will see former headteacher Paul Strong OBE, from Claxby, unveil a commemorative plaque.

Headteacher Andrew Stones said he was looking forward to the event.

He said: “I’m really looking forward to welcoming staff and students back to William Farr.

“It will be a fantastic opportunity to renew friendships and enjoy reminiscing about past events.

“We are always proud to see our students go out into the world to make a difference and it will be inspiring to hear about their many achievements since they left our school community.”

When the school launched its sixth form in 1995 it had just 47 students - there are now about 280.

Last year the school celebrated its best set of A levels ever.

A third of all exams sat by the 133 sixth formers resulted in A and A* grades, the highest level since the sixth form began 19 years ago.

The reunion event starts at 12pm. Contact Pat May on 01673 866926, email p.may@williamfarr.lincs.sch.uk or go to williamfarr.lincs.sch.uk/news/latest-news/2015/sixth-form-reunion
