We will remember them

This week's very special Remembrance Assembly was led by the Sixth Form Leadership team, who each chose to read either a poem or an account of an inspirational woman whose courage was marked.

A minute of reflection was shared until the last post was played by a lone trumpeter and drew the moving assembly to a close.
