School friends from years gone by have got together for an emotional reunion - complete with a surprise visit from a former headteacher.
Former pupils of what used to be known as Tower Hamlets School for Girls – now Mulberry School - organised the catch up for classmates who started there between 1963 and 1983.
And emotions ran high as friends were reunited at an East End pub, with more than 100 former pupils taking the time to catch up with each other.
Organiser Brenda said: “It was brilliant. There were lots of laughs, a few tears and plenty of drinks!
“Everyone’s so happy it was done, and they are really pleased to have got in touch with old school friends.”
