Claremont Fan Court pauses to remember

To ensure pupils remained safely within their year group bubbles, Claremont Fan Court School's annual remembrance service took on a rather different form this year.

On Wednesday 11 November, pupils and staff watched a specially recorded virtual service from their respective classrooms, which began with a vocal performance by Aida, an address from headmaster, Mr William Brierly, and the laying of the wreath on the mansion steps by head students, Olly and Gabby .

A two minute silence was then observed, at the end of which sounded by The Last Post. Through green screen technology, Hannah, Jagger and Helena delivered their own emotive readings alongside some wonderful and moving musical performances by Jess, Isabel, Lara, Rishi and Callum.

The Prep and Pre-Prep and Nursery School children also marked the occasion with a 2 minute silence at the 11th hour.

We thank all those involved in preparing such a respectful and poignant remembrance service, despite the restrictions, as we continue to remember all those who have given their lives during wars, both past and present.

Lest we forget!
