In 2014 Glenmere celebrated its 50th anniversary. We did a number of things to celebrate this significant event in our school and local community’s life. To find out more about what we did and view our photo timeline then please click here.

One of the things we did was engage with our local community to discover the history of our school and people’s memories of their time here over those 50 years. We did this through archive research, memory sharing coffee afternoons, a special Facebook page and through speaking to staff, families and pupils who were or are currently at Glenmere.

The magazine is a full colour, 34 page, professionally designed, glossy magazine full of past and present photos, memories, current pupil drawings and school history. We have very much appreciated everyone’s support in providing the information to help make this magazine possible. We also thank the Leicester Mercury for giving us permission to publish articles and photos from local archives. It is a real keepsake for anyone who is, or has been, involved at Glenmere in any way over the past 50 years.
