Congratulations to St John Fisher Catholic Voluntary Academy, in Derby, which celebrated its 70th anniversary on June 20th.

A full day of celebrations was held to mark the occasion and the festivities started with a visit from BBC Radio Derby. Staff, former pupils and current pupils were interviewed throughout the breakfast show with Andy Twigge.

Pupils enjoyed ice cream at lunchtime before Mass was celebrated with Bishop Patrick. Following Mass, ex-pupils and staff were invited into school for refreshments and to reminisce about their time at school whilst looking through old photos.

What a fantastic day, congratulations St John Fisher!
