Remembrance Sunday

As part of Remembrance Sunday the staff & students gathered in the Chapel Gardens amongst the beautiful ceramic poppies created previously by pupils and students based on the Tower of London installation.

At the start of the ceremony, Mr Ward read a poem written by Miers Court Primary school. George Stevens, student, and Mr Ellis played the Last Post, following which Mr Ward read the famous verse from the Poem For the Fallen by Robert Laurence Binyon (see below).

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old. Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them.

This was followed by the 2-minute silence and the ceremony ended with a pupil, Daniel, reading Dulce et Decorum. A big thank you to all our pupils and students who showed respect and observed the 2-minute silence.

Pupils have previously studied the book ‘War Horse’ in English as well as WW1 and the Blitz in Humanities in order to gain an insight surrounding WW1.
