A summer fayre was held at Thomas Easton Primary Academy to mark 200 years since the school opened in 1818.
Staff say the day was “a tremendous success” and everyone who attended “had a very enjoyable time”.
Nicola Jones, acting head, said: “We’ve raised loads for the new library, we haven’t got an exact figure yet but it is over £1,000.
“I’d just like to thank the business that sponsored the event and provided prizes, it was a fantastic day.”
A spokesman said: “It was a fitting way to celebrate the bicentenary of Thomas Eaton School and we hope that all of the children have received their commemorative coins provided by the Parents Teachers and Friends Association (PTFA).
“I would like to thank the PTFA especially Naomi Clark and Anne Appleby for all their hard work and support.”
The total amount of money raised at the event is yet to be revealed.
