Caterham High School celebrated its 60th anniversary yesterday, with students and teachers dressing up and entertaining former alumni.

The school, in Caterham Avenue, Clayhall, opened on April 17 in 1956, and three pupils who started that day were in attendance – Ken Saunders, Dave Culf and Derek Flack.

There was lots of old memorabilia dotted around the halls, and current students gave former students tours around the modern school.

Teachers tucked into ice creams on a beautiful hot sunny day, and head Dr Alan Atkins gave a speech.
