This programme features the bittersweet final term at Orelton Park where an air of celebration meets with the sadness of an era coming to an end.
Orelton Park Secondary School opened in 1940 and its closure brings down the curtain on a closely bonded school community. It is one of three schools closing to make way for the HLC, a state-of-the-art PFI school in Telford.
Hadley Infant and Junior Schools will also close, but their buildings will be home to the primary phase of the HLC for a term, until their new facilities open in January 2007.
The retiring headteacher at Hadley Junior School reflects on the achievements of his 15 year career at the school.
For Dr Gill Eatough, principal of the HLC, there's little room for sentiment as she manages the transfer of pupils and some staff from the closing schools.
