Banquet as academy celebrates
10:51am Wednesday 6th February 2013 in News
A NEWLY-created academy in Grays held a medieval banquet for pupils to celebrate an important chapter in the school’s history.
Belmont Castle Academy, formerly Stifford Primary, had its academy status confirmed earlier this month.
Its new name pays tribute to the former Gothic mansion, Belmont Castle, which stood on the school’s grounds.
Built in 1795, it was demolished to make way for a chalk quarry.
