A NEW school building was given the royal seal of approval when Prince Edward, the Earl of Wessex, officially opened it.

The Prince was greeted by scores of flag-waving pupils at Heckmondwike Grammar on Tuesday as he opened the £3m Crellin building, a new sixth form centre.

The name Crellin was chosen in honour of former headteacher Mark Tweedle. Mr Tweedle, whose middle name is Crellin, retired last year after more than 20 years at the school.

Prince Edward took a tour of the school, met pupils, teachers, staff and dignitaries, before unveiling a plaque to the new building.
