As we approach Remembrance Day, students at King Ed's observed a two minute silence to remember those who have fallen in the two world wars and in other armed conflicts across the world.

At eleven o'clock on Friday 9 November a bugler sounded The Last Post and the quad fell silent as our student and staff body joined together to show their respect for those who had laid down their lives in conflict.

To mark the end of the silence, Harry Bramhill took to the bugler and played the Reveille and Jake Main chair of the Student Union gave a reading. Following this, a ceremony was held in the main hall where representatives from the student body, board of governors and Old Edwardian's club laid wreaths in front of the college's war memorial.

Speaking after the ceremony, Principal, Remley Mann, said: "With so many former students having served and fallen in armed conflicts, marking Remembrance Day has always been important here at King Ed's. We are proud of our heritage and it is heartening to see our current students embracing this opportunity to show their respect."
