You may recognise the banners - they were taken from the Shelley Drive school and have been relocated to the new assembly hall. Made to celebrate the 125th Anniversary of the school in 1998, these will now see the school through to the 150th Anniversary celebrations in 2023.

I wasn't planning on taking photos of the lavatorial arrangements, but this "open plan" system is designed to prevent smoking, bullying and "skiving" in the toilets. I think it's a marvellous idea! The colour coding of the walls indicates the gender - blue for boys...

Previously, students had to squeeze into tiny practice rooms. Now, they are provided with more room. Perhaps they'll now be able to extend a trombone all the way out!

The arrival of pupils from Braidfield High School after its closure heralded a new era in school tie design. Out was the traditional "Chocolate and Gold" and in was an amalgamation of the BHS and CHS ties. Senior pupils now have a seperate blue tie with the CHS crest in the centre.
