BISHOP Bell was honoured recently to be chosen to feature in a film being made to celebrate 200 years of Church Schools. The Heritage Lottery funded project features four Primary Schools from across Sussex, portraying the history of their schools and how education has changed alongside Bishop Bell School, demonstrating the benefits and meaning of being a Church School community in the 21st Century. The ‘Chalk to Mouse’ project aims to complete in the autumn.
