Oranges and Lemons

Published

Continuing the tradition that began in March 1920, the school celebrated its annual ‘Oranges and Lemons’ festival today.

The theme of this year’s service was ‘Celebrating Our City’.

The whole school processed down the road from the school to St Clement Danes Church, as the church bells rang out “Oranges and Lemons, say the bells of St Clement’s” . 

Today, just like the children at the very first Oranges & Lemons service 98 years ago, each child was handed an orange and a lemon as they left the church.
