The official cutting of the ribbon was carried out by Karen Roberts, which was followed by a special blessing by the Imam of Broadfield Mosque and was rounded off with songs sung by year 6 children.

The centre piece to the new entrance area is a unique, collaborative tile panel created by the children and Brighton based artist Angela Evans.
