Leiston: County council chief officially opens Alde Valley School

SENIOR officials were on hand to officially open a re-vamped high school and sixth form.

Deborah Cadman, chief executive of Suffolk County Council, was at Alde Valley School - previously Leiston High School - yesterday.

She met with students and staff and enjoyed a tour of the Seaman Avenue site before visiting the new Alde Valley 6th Form Centre, at the town’s former middle school in Waterloo Avenue.

The high school underwent a major refurbishment ahead of welcoming its new students last month.
