A Clayhall school celebrated its 60th anniversary on Friday with a lunch, talent contest, fete and star guest Naomi Scott, from the Disney Channel.
The star of Disney film Lemonade Mouth judged the talent show at Gilbert Colvin Primary School and signed autographs for the children.
Head teacher Debbie Wiles said: “They were excited to see her, there were a few hysterical screams.
“It was a very good day.”
Pupils and teachers celebrated the occasion with a “corridor party” after the playground street party was rained off.
