On Saturday, 12 July 2014, St Nicholas Church of England Primary School mounted an exhibition celebrating over 150 years of its history, from when it started as Harpenden's National School, close to the parish church.

This was complemented by children's activities, a quiz, traditional refreshments and musical entertainment throughout.
