The School History Display

Since starting the school history project, I have created, and regularly updated, a display of my findings to share with those who use and operate in the building daily. I have made sure the information on this website has been added to it as well as the most up to date photos of the school throughout time. It was then announced that my display would be showcased in Deal Town Hall after it has been removed from the building for demolition works! The images below show how the display has changed since I started it in February 2016 - full photo gallery on desktop site!
