In 2021 Chilton Foliat Primary school celebrated its sestercentennial anniversary, that’s 250 years of our wonderful village school!
In 1771, when a charitable endowment was made by Roger and Elizabeth Spanswick to provide an education for the children of the parish, could they have imagined that the school would still be going strong and welcoming pupils from the parish and well beyond 250 years later?
A “250” page has been set up on Facebook, along with an email address, email@example.com for alumni to get in touch and share any happy memories or anecdotes from their time at the school.
As part of the celebrations, we produced a recipe book… with a twist! The recipes were provided by members of the community. The book brings together a unique collection of recipes just for us; passed down through the generations. It includes some of the best photographs of the life and times of the school. Copies are still available for sale.
