Talk by the Reedham Trust

Thursday 9th June 2022

This afternoon we welcomed Mrs Palmer from the Reedham Trust. She spoke to the whole school about the Reedham Orphanage, Reedham School and Dr Andrew Reed himself. And of course our school – Beaumont Primary School. What was clear was how our school heritage is linked to this site’s past history. We currently work very closely with the Reedham Trust. Mrs Palmer showed our pupils archived photographs of the Reedham Orphanage and then the Reedham School and where they were originally located. In fact, where all of the pupils are sitting in the hall is where the old pig farm used to be located and the apple orchards. HM Queen Elizabeth II is the patron of the Reedham Trust. Everybody learnt so much about our school’s history.
