Headteacher Kate Parker-Randall said: “It is with great pride that we celebrate the very first time that women could actually take part in an election on December 14, 1918. As we plant this tree in remembrance of that day, we hope people see it and will remember that women from all walks of life have the Suffragettes and Suffragists to thank.

“As new life blossomed in 1918, so does it here at Bridlington School.”
