Pupils across the Junior School and Senior School joined together in a poignant ceremony on Remembrance Day to remember those that died during the World Wars.   

Children in Reception through to Year 9 neatly and quietly filed into the quad to listen to Headmaster Craig Watson talk about our fallen heroes.  Renditions of The Last Post, Reveille and I Vow to Thee were played by Senior pupils on a tenor horn and violin, marking the occasion beautifully.  

In the Junior School, following their English lesson on WW1 poetry, Year 6 pupil Sparsh shared his poem entitled 'A Poem of Remembrance': 

 

Death by the door

Was sadly on the moor

The army tried

And some survived

 

We respect what they did

As they hid, hid, hid

Peace is what they brought

As they fought, fought, fought

 

Poppies are what we wear

As we remember fearsome souls

Respect is what we give

Because they helped our goals.
