Introduction by Paul Ayres, Chairman of the Trust
We've just celebrated the 66th Anniversary of our Academy. We weren’t always an Academy of course or this good! Back in the day when the school was built and opened on 1 September 1953 its main purpose was to accommodate railway children. Nothing to do with Edith Nesbit’s classic novel I would add, it’s just that most of the children who were first enrolled had initially relocated from London and then more latterly had been born in and around this area of Bletchley.
