IN SEPTEMBER, youngsters all over Andover and surrounding areas started school for the first time.

Every year, the Advertiser captures photos of boys and girls in their new classes to mark the milestone.

As the reception classes of 2021 near the end of the first half term of their school lives, we're excited to be running our traditional First Class picture special for parents, grandparents and other family members to treasure for years to come.

This school year’s picture special appears inside the Advertiser TOMORROW, Friday, October 15.

Make sure to pick up your copy to see pictures of your son or daughter from 24 classes across the area.

And if you're a teacher at one of the schools that has not yet taken part, get in touch by emailing for more details on the second installment.

To get a copy of the photos yourself, contact the relevant schools. The Advertiser does not own the copyright of the photos in the supplement.
