The Bishop of London has helped a primary school to celebrate its 200th anniversary.
The Rt Rev Richard Chartres visited Kentish Town CofE Primary School in Kentish Town Road, Kentish Town, last Wednesday to mark the historic milestone with pupils, staff, and school council members.
The bishop was invited to recreate the moment when in 1849, 34 years after it was founded, the school moved from its first site to its current premises and opened by the former Bishop of London.
Dr Chartres led an assembly at the school, in which he displayed historic photographs of the school, after discussing with pupils about what the school meant to them.
Former headteachers, staff and pupils also came along to the celebrations, including a 94-year-old woman who attended the school in 1927.
