The Somme Commemorations

The 1st of July marks 100 years since the beginning of The Battle of the Somme.

This was the start of one of the bloodiest campaigns in history with men from all corners of the world being involved. Students and staff marked this occasion by organising activities in lessons to acknowledge and show gratitude to the great men who were injured or who lost their lives in order to preserve our freedom.

Led by Mr Grisdale, staff prepared cross curricular activities to give students a chance to reflect on the events that occurred 100 years ago.
