Fitzjohn’s Primary School in Hampstead celebrated its Diamond Jubilee with a special fancy dress garden party.
The school, in Fitzjohn’s Avenue, marked 60 years since its opening in 1953 with a garden party for current and past pupils, parents, carers and staff on Friday.
Last week, the school put on a range of activities to commemorate the milestone - including a sponsored sports event and a special decades dance assembly - culminating in the fancy dress-themed garden party.
Party-goers were invited to dress in the style of their favourite decade from the past six decades.
Headteacher Rob Earrey, one of only five headteachers in the school’s history, said: “We are thrilled to be celebrating Fitzjohn’s Diamond Jubilee. The school has a proud past, and looks to a bright future.
