On Remembrance Sunday, the School supported the local community by participating in Sutton Valence village’s parade, to remember and honour those who have sacrificed themselves to secure and protect our freedom. The parade and following service were, as ever, well attended by residents, Cubs and Scouts, past and present School families, staff and Old Suttonians.
Alongside the British Legion, 70 cadets from all three services, led by CWO Lara Savage, Head of Corp and the colour party, marched from the School Quad, to the War Memorial to lay wreaths. On the way, Headmaster, Bruce Grindlay took the salute.
Once again the whole School gathered on Prefect’s Lawn at 11am on the 11th of November to mark the Armistice. We remembered all of those who fell whilst serving this country, particularly the Old Boys of Sutton Valence School, with prayers and two minutes of silence.
