On Remembrance Sunday, all of our Head Students along with Mrs Curson represented Spalding Academy by taking part in the Spalding Town Parade and placing a poppy wreath at the memorial service.

Mrs Curson, Head of School said “It was an honour to watch the students lay our wreath, alongside all our local Defences and Emergency Services representatives.”

Throughout last week, students and staff have been getting involved in a variety of ways from selling poppies in aid of the Royal British Legion to incorporating Remembrance into subject lessons.

A stunning Remembrance display was organised by our amazing Art department and installed on the school grounds that featured a sea of ceramic individually designed poppies. The display featured poppies that have been made by students in lessons, during lunchtime and after school since the start of the academic year. Our staff have also got involved in making poppies as the whole school worked together.

On Remembrance Day on 11th November at 11am, the whole school stopped during breaktime for a one-minute silence to mark the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the month, which was impeccably observed as we remember the people who have died in wars around the world.

Each year, we also give students that are part of a RAF, Army or Police Cadets, St John Ambulance or Scouts and Guides the opportunity to wear their uniform throughout the school day.
