Armistice Day

Today is Armistice Day, which marks the time the guns fell silent along the Western Front at 11am on 11th November 1918 and an armistice was declared to end WWI. We will mark the day with two minutes silence and the bell will sound at 10:48. The bell for break will then sound at 10:50.

If any students have seen or read Michael Morpurgo’s War Horse, or come across any poetry from WWI, you will know that this was considered ‘the war to end all wars’.

Today we remember all those who have fought for and served our country from all generations. The Poppy Appeal funds support these servicemen and women.

Yesterday Izzy and Jack, Head Girl and Head Boy, took part in the Remembrance Day parade held at the town’s War Memorial.
