Remembrance Day poppy

Remembrance Day 2023

It is over a century since the guns on the Western Front fell silent on November 11, 1918 and the memories of the Great War are now confined to accounts in history books.

With the passage of almost eight decades since the end of WWII there is also an ever dwindling number of those who remember the horrors of this conflict.

On Friday, the students and staff at the Key Stage 3 site paid their respects and remembered those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country observing a two minute silence ahead of Remembrance Day. The school reception area was also decorated and a life size Poppy Tree was displayed to inspire our students to learn more about the significance of the Poppy and its connection to Remembrance Day.
