Schools’ Week is an important part of our Windsor Platinum Jubilee Celebrations, it is unique to Windsor and a chance for all the local schoolchildren to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee. James Manwaring from the Windsor Learning Partnership has been working hard to bring all the schools in Windsor together to share ideas and collaborate wherever possible on Jubilee events. This is a fantastic opportunity for children to mix across schools and age ranges to join in the excitement of the Jubilee.
