Location: Eastergate, Chichester, West Sussex
This professional film was produced by The Electricity Council for West Sussex County Council. Through commentary and interviews with the Headmistress, her pupils and the architects it charts the move of Eastergate Church of England Primary School from an unsuitable, overcrowded 19th century building, to which they hold a certain sentimentality, to a new functional purpose-built open-plan site in 1970.
The clips here are taken from the film 'A New School for Eastergate' ID No.1273. Please contact Screen Archive South East for further information or visit their website.
