THE new term at Knights Templar School in Watchet also marked the start of a new merger between the school and the Little Viking Pre- School.

A spokesman for the school said: “This will create more exciting opportunities for us and the nursery, and we look forward to sharing our best practices with them and providing a wonderful experience for children in the area.”
