LES Beaucamps School opened its doors to the public for the first time on Saturday, much to the delight of many islanders.
Hundreds of people turned out to take a look around the new building, which students moved into in September.
Many visitors were impressed by the design of the four-floor building and surprised by the layout.
Nicola Roussel, 36, visited the school with her 11-year-old daughter, Emily.
She had attended the former Les Beaucamps as a teenager.
‘It’s absolutely amazing – it’s much more modern than the old one,’ she said.
