Hundreds flock to Queen’s Park school’s Royal Jubilee Fair
First ever public event by ARK Atwoon which opened last September
Hundreds of people basked in the sun and enjoyed a right royal rave-up at a school first ever public event on Saturday.
ARK Atwood in Third Avenue, Queen’s Park, hosted a Royal Jubilee Fair which included a play by reception pupils about the coronation of the Queen.
All 60 pupils of the school, which opened last September, had a part – from the Queen, Prince Philip and Arch Bishop of Canterbury.
The youngsters also played the parts of kings, presidents and ambassadors from countries from Scotland to Djbouti and even more local areas such as Queens Park and Kilburn.
Daniel Upfield, the school’s headmaster, played Richard Dimbleby who commentated the event on TV in 1953.
The day also included a bouncy castle, barbeque and salad bar, jubilee jumble sale, a very popular guess the weight of the headteacher competition, cake stall, flower stall, tombola, crafts and face painting.

Mr Upfield said: “We had a really wonderful day and it was a fantastic celebration of our first year.
“I’d like to thank the children whose coronation and procession was the highlight of the day, the parents who worked tirelessly to pull off a stunning event, the many families and neighbours who came to visit and support the school and local businesses who were extremely generous in supporting us.”
