Royal Mail stamp competition

Heroes Stamp Design CompetitionRoyal Mail


Although the stamps that the children designed back in June 2021 for the Royal Mail ‘Heroes Stamp Collection’ were not amongst the winning entries chosen, they were absolutely delighted to have taken part in this momentous piece of history and being a part of it.   So you can imagine how thrilled they were to be informed that they have achieved the status of being part of a  GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title because they participated in this competition where 606,049 entries were received.

The children and staff of Hartington School would like to sincerely congratulate the winners of the competition and they all look forward to seeing their entries as a Royal Mail stamp

The stamps are now available to pre-order at and by phone on 03457 641 641. They will be available on general sale from 23 March.
