Wath Academy will celebrate its 100th anniversary in September and events will focus on remembering the past, commemorating the present and growing a positive future.
Wath Academy was founded in 1923 as Wath Secondary School and has served the local community for 100 years. For the majority of this time, it was known as Wath Grammar School and then Wath Comprehensive School.
Liam Ransome, Principal of Wath Academy, said: “This is a momentous occasion for our Academy. In September we will have been educating people in our community for 100 years.
“Looking to the future and the future generations we’re aiming to plant 100 trees with the National Trust scheme. We all know how important looking after the environment is and we want to help to grow a positive future for our young people. We are asking our supporters and families to donate to a special centenary fund to enable us to do this.
“We have achieved so many great things in the past 100 years and we can’t wait to celebrate this major milestone and look forward to delivering even more in the next 100 years!”
