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.

Here, you can see the photos of all 24 classes we've featured in this year's supplement.

And they also appears inside a special copy of this week's Advertiser.

Make sure to pick up your copy to pick up the commemorative edition, featuring your son or daughter from one of the 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 instalment.

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.
