The whole school paid tribute for Remembrance Day, with all students and staff at the College marking the day with early morning assemblies at tutor time in the house areas and in the main College Hall.

 

There were very moving and powerful presentations in all the assemblies covering World War I and World War II to honour and remember the fallen, those who survived and the history of why we all wear the poppy. The assemblies all fell silent for two minutes after the bugler played the ‘Last Post’.

 

 

 

 

At 10.45am, our Combined Cadet Force joined the Principal, Mr Ball, who invited representatives from our campus partners and the local community to attend the annual ceremony in the College Memorial Garden. 

 

All the guests and students from each house lay a wreath at the foot of our Memorial Fountain to pay tribute to those who fought.  Mr Hurrell, teacher of History led the service by giving a speech and students read out tributes to former students of the College who sadly lost their lives in conflict.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mr Goldsworthy, teacher of Music, played the ‘Last Post’ and the gathering all fell silent for two minutes at 11.00am to remember everyone who has fought, both past and present, as a mark of respect.
