A school which faced permanent closure almost two decades ago will be officially reopened today - thanks to villagers who raised more than £2 million towards the running costs.
The Priors School in Priors Marston, Warwickshire, had to become independent in 1996 after the local education authority decided to withdraw funding - but because it would not charge pupils, it struggled to survive.
But a campaign launched in support of the school soon gathered pace thanks to the 650 people living in the area - and even attracted the support of Princess Diana.
Today, her brother Earl Spencer will officially open the new school after a £1m revamp.
