Whether you loved them or hated them, your school years are an essential part of growing up – some say the best days of your life – and today we look back to a day in the life of pupils at Felixstowe’s Grange Community Primary School 28 years ago.

Grange Community Primary School caters for boys and girls aged from four to 11-years-old, it is based in Grange Road, serving the west of the town – including the Cavendish Park and Orwell Green estates – and welcomes around 200 children every day.
