Our Juniors and Seniors have been learning more about soldiers’ lives as part of their History lessons this week, to mark the centenary of the end of WW1.

Years 5-11 found out what soldiers’ lives were like in the trenches. They worked together to explore the reality of war on the front line; their attitudes to the conflict; how they ate; slept and formed friendships, as well what their lives were like away from home.

GCSE students watched Academy Award-winner Peter Jackson’s moving film, ‘They Shall Not Grow Old’, which uses state of the art technology to restore original archival footage.

J4 classmates wrote poems marking Remembrance during their English lesson. So impressive were two in particular, they were awarded a distinction in this morning’s assembly.

Lest we forget.
