A SCHOOL celebrated its 190th year with bygone costumes.

Fletching CE Primary School in Fletching, near Uckfield, brought out the bunting and nostalgia for the occasion.

The 83 children, aged four to 11, sang, took part in Morris dancing and played games led by house captains and vice-captains. Each class chose a time in history and dressed accordingly.

Themes included the First World War, Second World War, the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. Staff dressed up as well.

Head teacher Lorraine Kirkwood came as a Victorian lady.

She said: “It was absolutely brilliant. We had ex-pupils from the 1940s through to the 1970s visiting, which was lovely.”

Fletching CE Primary School is one of the oldest schools in its area.

It opened in 1824 and was originally for girls only. Prince Charles visited in 2000.
