Lest we forget

Senior School Remembrance Day Service

Today, all pupils at Senior School attended an assembly presented by the history department, to mark Armistice Day. Through powerful images, readings and prayers, staff and students explained why it is important that we remember the fallen on the 11th November and how we should wear our poppies with pride as a mark of respect.
