More than 300 children from Bardwell, Gislingham, Palgrave, and Old Newton CofE primary schools have celebrated a year of unity as an academy trust.
The pupils, alongside staff, parents, clergy, and friends, gathered at St Edmundsbury Cathedral on Monday, October 2, celebrate the Tilian Partnership Multi Academy Trust.
The Right Reverend, Dr Mike Harrison, Suffragan Bishop of Dunwich, presided, as each school led their favourite hymn and presented their chosen Christian value.
Laura Schultheiss, head of school at Old Newton spoke about the four schools' aptitude in singing together with one voice, and added that the children had gained confidence from the warm welcome they received.
Julia Waters, head of school at Palgrave, said it was a memorable day, and, for some of the children, their first time inside a cathedral.
The service was followed by a picnic in the Abbey Gardens.
