More than 400 people attended a celebration to mark 60 years of Wellsway School in Keynsham.
The Big Wellsway Reunion brought together students and former staff from all the decades of the school’s life.
Organiser Louise Riddoch said some guests who had been students on the opening day were reunited with classmates they had not seen for about 50 years.
“It was a wonderful event and we were blessed with amazing weather,” she said.
“It was very special to have former heads Paul Kent and John Smith with us.
“Tours of the school were very popular and everyone enjoyed sharing their memories.”
Entertainment was provided by performers Hatty Campbell, Tom Stentafoot, Anya Hathaway and the Wellsway Choir.
Wellsway School principal Matthew Woodville said: “This was a magical event. Many thanks to Mrs Riddoch and her team for organising such a memorable evening and bringing together the Keynsham community.”
