SCAFFOLDING is currently covering Steyning Grammar School’s Church Street site, as it prepares for the 400th anniversary celebrations.
The timbered 15th century building, which houses the lower school, is where the school began back in 1614.
Suzanne Terrington, marketing and lettings officer, said: “We are giving the front of Church Street a bit of a spruce up, clean and redecoration, in readiness for the 400th anniversary celebrations in May, when our Church Street site will be open to past students and the public.
“Our hope is that it will be complete by the end of April.”
The school is celebrating its 400th anniversary with a variety of events that involve current and past school students and staff, as well as members of the community.
The main reunion event is on Saturday, May 24, when the historic Church Street School will be opened to past students and the public.
Archive material on the school’s history will be on display and the Church Street grounds will be open for those wishing to picnic and soak up some of the Steyning Festival entertainment.
