Today we held our Remembrance Day Service led by our Headmaster Mr Mike Stanley.
It included beautiful songs from our choir, including “In Flanders Fields” and “A Wish For Peace”. There were poignant readings by Year 8 pupils Charlie and Ella, and in front of our Roll of Honour cut glass window, our Year 8s read all of the names of the fallen in wars from our school. Our Head Boy Dudley and Head Girl Freya laid a wreath just before the Last Post and our two-minute silence.
We were delighted to welcome some of our parents, including Charlie’s Dad, who attended in full ceremonial dress.

In Reception today, the children have been making poppies and creating pictures of fields of poppies in an Impressionist style.

The children heard about William Edgar Holmes, Mrs Holdom’s Great Uncle who died aged 23 while retrieving three of his injured comrades. he was posthumously awarded the Victoria Cross.
