Remembrance Sunday: 11 November

Sunday’s Service represents a very important part of our calendar as we commemorate to 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War, and those who have lost their lives during subsequent conflicts. We require all pupils to report to their Houses at 10.30am for registration.

Parents of Day Pupils are welcome to wait in the Dining Hall during the Service, where Tea and Coffee will be available. Sadly we are unable to accommodate parents in the Chapel for the Service due to this being a whole school event, but we will be screening the National Service of Remembrance from the cenotaph on Whitehall, London in the MBR alongside the Dining Hall for those parents who are waiting.
