"This year's commemorations have been particularly poignant with it being one hundred years since the start of the Great War. Learners in Year 7 started their study of the First World War last year on the 28th of June to mark the assassination of Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo 100 years ago. This week, assemblies focused on how the conflict has been remembered across the country throughout history. In the school the two minutes silence was perfectly observed by both learners and staff. One learner, Jonathon travelled down to London during half term to help plant poppies at the Tower of London."
