WWI commemorated in Humanities

The First World War is commemorated in Humanities with a moving and beautiful display depicting lines of soldiers marching towards a distant goal, while below their feet the iconic image of the British Legion poppy is repeated in memory of the dead.

Each poppy is a contribution from a pupil, visitor, member of staff or parent, representing a wide-ranging perspective on conflict. Some commemorate individuals while others hold a single quotation; all are powerful.

The Wall was constructed by teacher Lucy McKee in Summer 2014, marking a century since the declaration of war in July 1914. It will be taken down in Summer 2015.
