On Thursday 11th November, the whole school gathered in The Yard to remember the sacrifice of the Armed Forces, and all those who have lost their lives in conflict and acts of terrorism.
Director of Development, James Bailey, also gave a whole school assembly speaking about the importance of Remembrance, and sharing the stories of some of our Old Elizabethans. You can watch the videos from the assembly below:
