Remembrance Day

During these strange times the school have still participated in a number of services to commemorate Remembrance day whilst still observing social distancing. Two Year 7 students were able to visit the cenotaph prior to Remembrance Sunday to place 80 crosses in preparation for the scaled down service last Sunday. Head Boys and Girls also visited the Cenotaph to place the Westhoughton High wreath, they also placed a wreath in our school remembrance garden.

Today we invited any students who attend uniformed youth groups (cadets/guides/scouts etc) to attend school in their uniform and the whole school has observed a 2 minute silence at 11am to mark their respects, and during form time this morning work and discussions have taken place to mark Armistice Day and help our students understand the significance of this day.
