Between the birth of Princess Charlotte, a bank holiday weekend and the General Election in the first week of May 2015, an important local anniversary has slipped through almost un-noticed. Our school was officially opened forty years ago this month.

The four ancestor secondaries had merged in the summer and classes had started at Lincoln Christ’s Hospital School in September 1974. However and inevitably, there was so much going on in this new school led by Headmaster Behenna that it was decided that the official opening shouldn’t take place for another eight months. It started at 11 am on Saturday, 3rd May 1975.

I wonder how the governors, staff and pupils of Lincoln Christ’s Hospital School would celebrate the official opening of the school if it happened today.
