Back in June 1991, North Kyme Primary School welcomed a new headteacher - David Stewart, from Newcastle upon Tyne.

He had joined this term after previously teaching in Skegness. He admitted it had been a huge change as his last school had 300 children and North Kyme had just 27.

He said he was overwhelmed by the support of parents and staff.

He said children had a good attitude and were quick to learn. He was also keen to recruit more parents and pupils to boost numbers at the school.

Sadly, a decade later, the school closed and is now occupied by Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership’s driving skills academy.

Were you among these pupils? What happened to Mr Stewart?
