As we approach the end of the first term in our wonderful new building it is worth reflecting on the transformation LJS has undergone in just a few short years.
When Mr Gove, in his wisdom, decided to terminate the BSF (Building Schools for the Future) project over 5 years ago, it appeared that the hopes and dreams of another generation of young people from Guisborough and East Cleveland would be consigned to the file marked ‘junk’. That included the Kilton Thorpe community, who were part of our exciting and creative co-location plan.
Headteacher’s Blog – November Events
LJS officially opened
Whilst the keys to our fantastic new building were formally handed over on 30 August and we have been fully occupying since the first week in September, the official opening ceremony took place on Friday 4 November from 1pm until 2.30pm. The event was led by our inspirational local politician and paralympic legend Baroness Grey-Thompson, crowned a full week of activities to mark this historic landmark for Laurence Jackson School.
