Lewes Old Grammar School, the towns oldest school, which survived the dissolution of the monasteries, chose Glyndebourne opera house for its Festival 500 extravaganza involving more than 200 pupils.
More than 1,100 guests filled the opera house on Sunday to help LOGS, which began under the protection of Lewes Priory in 1512 with just one master and a handful of boys, to celebrate its half-millennium.
The sun came out, the pupils danced, played, sang and acted their hearts out and we had an unforgettable day, said headmaster Robert Blewitt.
Celebrations began earlier this year with a fireworks display in Lewes Paddock and will continue with a celebratory dinner at Firle Place in May.
