The CCF pay tribute on Armistice Day

A two-minute silence was observed at 11 am to remember those who died in military conflict. Following Archie Johnson's reading of MCMXIV by Philip Larkin and the Last Post played by Rowan Clayton, three CCF cadets laid two poppy wreaths under the First World War memorial in the Hall.

For a second year, students and staff were not able to gather en masse and so the service was live-streamed to classrooms ensuring that everyone was able to mark the occasion. We thank those students involved in the commemoration for their impeccable conduct in what is always a very moving and thought-provoking event.

Pate’s cadets were outstanding on parade in Winchcombe on Remembrance Sunday. They made a significant contribution to the event and it was very impressive to watch. Our thanks to our cadets and commanders - Captain J Markos who led the contingent and Flight Lt L Evans the RAF.
