To mark Remembrance and the 75th anniversary of key campaigns in 1944, the History department organised a series of events to commemorate the sacrifices made by our Armed Forces today and in the past. Our school community has numerous personal connections to the Armed Forces and this year we aimed to involve as many staff and students as possible in the act of Remembrance. Throughout the week Year 11 and Sixth Form students sold Poppies, pin badges and other Remembrance items at break and lunchtimes to raise money for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.

On Friday 8th November, members of the Tyldesley branch of the Royal British Legion were invited into school. Those students in school who are members of Army, Sea or Air Cadets attended school in their military uniform as a mark of respect to those who have made sacrifices for our country. Following this, Year 8 students and the Cadets spent time with members of the Royal British Legion interviewing them about their experiences of conflict, the work of the Royal British Legion and what Remembrance means to them.

Wigan Councillors, students, staff and members of the local community were invited to take part in special Remembrance service. They planted crosses at the Remembrance Memorial and at the end of the service our student Cadets laid a wreath in Remembrance to those from our local area who have fought in wars current and past. As well as this, a representative from each form in Year 7 to 13 and members of the local community planted a cross in Remembrance at the school Remembrance Memorial. Year 6 students from St. Ambrose Barlow also attended our service this year and shared in our commemorations. Each year the numbers of students attending our service increases and great support is shown within our school community for Remembrance.

At lunchtime there was a bake sale organised by our House leaders, which raised over £200 for the Poppy Appeal. The final total raised for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal will be revealed soon.

Requests received during or just before school closure periods will not be able to be responded to within the one calendar month response period. This is because no one will be on site to comply with the request. As a result, it is unlikely that your request will be received during this time (and so the time period does not run until we receive the request). We may not be able to acknowledge your request during this time (i.e. until a time we receive the request) and the time period may not start until the School re-opens. The School will endeavour to comply with requests as soon as possible and will keep in communication with you as far as possible. If your request is urgent, please provide your request during term times and not during/close to closure periods.
