The Prince spent 40 minutes at the school meeting staff and pupils and planted an oak tree in the grounds. Also in attendance were The Lord Lieutenant of Lancashire, the Mayor of Lancaster and the local MP and County Councilor.
A commemorative plaque was produced by the team at Signs Express (Lancaster), who are based on Lake Enterprise Park in Lancaster.
