We are very excited to be celebrating our 50th anniversary this year at Pilgrims’ Way. The school was opened in September 1971 and therefore we will be marking this special milestone with a number of events over the year.   

The first of those was to rename our houses to bring them in line with our current curriculum and school values. Last year, all the children took part in a survey which led us to want to make the change, the children wanted the houses to be more current and be more representative of our school. We asked the children what theme they wanted the house names to follow, they decided on inspirational people.
