MANSFIELD’S Samworth Church Academy was given the royal seal of approval when Princess Anne officially opened the multi-million pound school on Monday.

The Princess Royal spent two hours at the state-of-the-art £20m building, which opened its doors last September, where she was greeted by the Lord-Lieutenant of Nottinghamshire, who introduced her to Mayor Tony Egginton and Mansfield MP Alan Meale, as well as Principal Michael Griffiths.
