Carol service ends Durham school's first term
TEACHERS and pupils at a new free school have rounded off their first term with a special carol service.
Durham Free School opened in September with 30 year seven pupils following a three-year campaign by parents and others.
The school, which is free of local authority control, is currently based in the former Durham Gilesgate Sports College, in Gilesgate, Durham City.
Its first term ended with a service in St Giles’ Church, led by the Rev Canon Dr Alan Bartlett.
There were readings by headteacher Peter Cantley and pupils Naomi Denning, Owen Mahaffey, Elize Smith and Kitty Tilder, plus prayers from Alyssa Findlay and Jamie Crampton.
