MORE than 160 former pupils of a Weston school have been reunited after more than 50 years.

An event held at The Royal Hotel in Royal Parade was put on for the pupils who attended the former Weston Boys' and Girls' Grammar Schools in the seaside town.

Those at the reunion had attended the schools, now replaced by Broadoak Mathematics and Computing College in Windwhistle Road, which were open between 1922 and 1971.

The oldest former pupil at the event was Mary Griffiths, aged 85, who went to the school in the 1930s.
