This week was Centenary week and all lessons and learning evolved around the theme of 100. The children loved hearing the story of Brambletye’s beginnings and the charismatic Reverend John Blencowe who played for Everton, survived being buried alive and was shipwrecked on a desert island before establishing Brambletye with his rescuer, Captain Sinker. They’ve made timelines, designed new school logos, and learned about inflation of the price of sweets to name just a few activities. The week culminated with the fantastic performance of the Centenary musical “Beauty and the Beast” which was attended by John’s son and former headmaster, Peter Blencowe and his wife. We very much hope that John would have been proud of the school which he created 100 years ago .
