Transparent silhouettes, donated by the “There but not there” remembrance charity (, have been placed around the school as a poignant reminder of the lives from the local area who were lost during World War I. The aim is to raise awareness and support for Help the Heroes and other veteran charities.

Assemblies and Form time throughout the week are focussing on Remembrance Day; and we will hold our annual whole school Remembrance service on Friday, when we will be joined by guests from the Royal British Legion and Spadeadam. Our Forces Liaison Officer, Mrs Lizzie Mcgaffin, is organising the commemoration with school.
