School’s treasure trove of pictures and diaries found during overhaul
The launch of a new state of the art block has given a Colchester school the chance to look back at its past.
Work began last year to demolish the old Gainsborough Block at Stanway School and replace it with a new building, which has now been unveiled and is fully in use.
It lead to the discovery of a treasure trove full of diaries, photos and memories explains English teacher Katherine Jones.
She explains Year 8 students Katja Simic-Lawson, Sophia Glass and Max West worked together to put together a report on the history of the school.
