(Photograph) - Headteacher Andrew Auster with a vintage fire engine which is used to take parents and children on guided tours at Orwell Park school in Ipswich. The school (fees pound;12,750 a year) has extensive grounds to tour - it is set in 105 acres of parkland.

Mr Auster said: "When visiting parents bring young children to see the school the children cheer up when they see the fire engine."

The engine, built in the 1960s, was a gift to the school from parents John and Elisabeth Alston. The school was camp to the legendary army tank division the Desert Rats just before D-Day. Photograph by JANE HARPER
