Pupils have planned and developed a peace garden, as a permanent commemoration for the men and women in the Vale, who  gave their lives  in the First World War. The official Opening of the garden will see year9 pupils presenting songs and drama for  our feeder faith schools to show how the war affected all at home and at war. The history department are researching the houses of those who went to war and showing in photographic displays what those houses look like today and all pupils in the school are contributing their own symbol of peace in the form of a decorated stone which will form part of the garden.
