This year, the Bloxham community came together in a number of ways to pay tribute to those who have lost their lives fighting for their country.

The school took part in a number of remembrance events, including the local parade and holding its own Remembrance Service on Armistice Day itself.

In addition, the Lower School pupils worked hard alongside the Art Department to produce their own ceramic poppies. The process began with a workshop with local Potter, Will Lehmann from Whichford Pottery. The pottery was responsible for producing a vast number of the poppies, which were on display around the Tower of London last year. The pupils were taught the original method of creating these poppies and everyone was excited to get started. By the end of the process, which included cutting, shaping, firing, painting and mounting each poppy, the pupils had created over 250 poppies for the display. These poppies were then proudly displayed around the school site during the Remembrance period, with 79 remaining in place to remember the 79 Old Bloxhamists who fell in the First World War.
