Students create school history website

THREE students from Horringer Court Middle School have created an exciting new website plotting the history of the school.

Harry Stonebridge, Toby Gardiner and Matt Field, all in Year 8, have spent the past year researching information about the Bury St Edmunds School. The website features details on past pupils, past teachers, what the area was like before the school was built, and a history of the area.

It was launched with a presentation last Monday attended by the Mayor of St Edmundsbury and local dignitaries.

Teaching assistant Nikki Stonebridge said the site would be updated regularly with new – and old – information. She said: “It is a work in progress so if anyone would like to get involved and give us some more history to put on the site they are very welcome.

The children been working on the site for about a year or so gathering the information.

“They have worked very hard and have even given up their lunch times to work on it.”
