Lest they Forget

On Friday the 23rd November our KS3 and GCSE History students visited the Imperial War Museum North in Manchester to see the rememberance exhibition 'Lest they forget!' - a history of WW1 rememberance. We also took the opportunity to view The Wave: The Poppy sculptural display, which was originally created in the Tower of London grounds, and closed down this weekend for another year.  This amazing piece of art has already formed the inspiration for our own ceramic poppies, created by staff and students to form our own piece of remembrance art, within our courtyard garden.
