Barnwell students came together in a unique way to mark the start of the Stevenage school’s diamond anniversary.
To celebrate its 60th year, pupils from Barnwell School gathered on a school football pitch to create a stunning image of Barnwell at 60.
The school will be hosting a range of anniversary events this year that will aim to unite the whole Barnwell community both past and present.
Matt Roberts, head of school, said: "We would like to say a massive thank you for everyone's support in making something that will stay part of Barnwell's history forever.
"The students were amazing and the organisation by staff made it seamless."
