I have only just realised the Perry Beeches Academy school celebrated its 75th anniversary on February 13th this year.
The school has certainly faced a number of challenges over the years including being burnt down and rebuilt.
The school is clearly on the way up these days and offers a wide range of activities for the youngsters who go there as well as an excellent standard of teaching.
The current modern clean and airy buildings can not compare with the old almost Colditz like school buildings and was it only 1999 when Perry Beeches Secondary School was designated a school in challenging circumstances and had a severe staffing crisis.?
Yes the school has come on a long way in just a few years and I hope it will continue to do so.
