A creative organisation is on the hunt for anyone who attended Christ Church Upper Armley Primary School within the last 150 years!

The school – who count Armley greats Alan Bennett and Barbara Taylor Bradford as former pupils – is celebrating its 150th anniversary this year and to mark the occasion will be holding a series of events.

Engaging Education is producing a short film for the school that features interviews between current students and alumni – but needs to find them first!

Barbara Taylor Bradford was recently presented with The Leeds Award, which recognises those who have made an enormous contribution to the city. She’s pictured with Leeds Lord Mayor Eileen Taylor

If you attended the school at any point in the last century, or you have a grandparent who did, they would love to hear from you.

If you can help directly message Engaging Education on Facebook or e-mail
