Bicentenary Celebration

Lots of visitors came to our  bicentenary celebration on Saturday October 15th, and everyone had a wonderful time on a lovely, sunny day. The celebrations were opened by the mayor of Brighton & Hove and there were displays, refreshments and entertainments - trapeze training, juggling, a band and dancing. Thanks to all the parents, staff and ex-pupils who helped make the day so successful. See photos here
We also had a lot of coverage in the local press - see here

Year 3 held a Victorian school-day as part of our Bicentenary celebrations. For photos and a video click here

Brighton Museum Display

Our display of artefacts and information to do with the school's history was opened by Mrs Hutchins on July 12th and will remain on view through to November. This display includes a 'listening-post' where visitors can listen to recordings of old pupils talking about school life in days gone by. Many children and parents have helped to create this display by researching documents, interviewing ex-pupils and making models. See photos here.
You can also see a selection of photographs and documents from Middle Street's past by clicking on the 'History' link on the menu.
