Over 1,100 pupils, staff, governors and invited guests gathered in the school’s Great Quadrangle today (Friday 10 November) to remember those who died in the World Wars and other conflicts.

Wreaths were laid at the War Memorial by the Head of School, Hannah Greenwood; CCF Cadet, Laavunya Arora; Flt Sgt Rob Reader, RAF (Jago 1992 - 2003) representing all past and current Old Silhillian serving officers; President of the Parents’ Association, Julie Jones; President of the Old Silhillians’ Association, Steve Urry; President of Saint Martin’s Old Girls Association, Louise Cox; Governor, Paul Newby; The Bursar, Richard Bate and the Executive Headmaster, Charles Fillingham.

A rendition of the Last Post was played by Lower Sixth student Kieran Bown, followed by a two-minute silence, the Reveille played by Third Form pupil Izzy Olden, and a Roll of Honour, before Mr Fillingham recited the traditional tribute to The Fallen.  The Act of Remembrance was live-streamed to 450 Prep School pupils and staff on the Saint Martin’s campus, and was followed by a Sixth Form Chapel Service led by Chaplain, Reverend Rachel Hill-Brown.
