The school's history club joined the team at Seamans' Building, based in Bury St Edmunds, to bury the capsule.

Site manager Neil Honeyball from Seamans removed a section of the floor so the capsule could be placed in.

He said: "It was a brilliant event.

The time capsule includes information on the history of the school and Elveden Estate, as well as pictures of the school buildings, teachers and members of the staff and information about royal visits.

Headteacher Lorna Rourke said: "The children really loved creating the time capsule.

"They got a chance to trawl through our archive to find out about the history of the school and picked out pieces they thought would be interesting to whoever opened it in the future."
