A school celebrated its name change with everything from a visit by the mayor to a display of parts of a model of an iron giant.

The open evening was hosted by pupils and staff from Archers Brook School on Chester Road, Great Sutton to mark the change of the school name from Capenhurst Grange.

Mayor of Ellesmere Port Cllr Bob Crompton, who is also a governor, attended in an official capacity.

Visitors were greeted by members of the school council and were given a tour around the main building.

Upstairs, they were able to take part in kitchen chemistry, see parts of a model of the iron giant being constructed and try a sample of the holistic therapies on offer to the pupils at the school.

Meanwhile on the ground floor, to a backdrop display of school activities and events, information about nurture groups, learning mentor strategies, the new autism centre and SEN initiatives were on display.

The horticulture department sold eggs and plants to visitors and the food tech department had cakes to be sampled.

There was a buffet spread in the dining hall with tea and coffee and doughnuts which had been donated by a local firm.

The evening ended with a raffle.

A spokesperson for the school said: “Staff and pupils would like to extend their thanks to all those that attended and supported the school with this significant event.”
