  • UCGS commemorates Remembrance Day

    Staff and students of Upton Court Grammar School commemorated Remembrance Day on Tuesday 11 November, in a moving ceremony presided by the school’s Principal.

    Mrs Hernández Estrada spoke of the courage and commitment of young soldiers from different nations one hundred years ago. Particularly poignant was the remembrance of a former student of the school, Stewart Thomas, from Willoughby Road in Langley who died in battle at the age of 17. From the school’s archives, a letter sent by him to the then Headmaster, Mr W Francis-Smith, a few days before his death was read out, and his last moments were performed by year 12 drama students in an emotional tribute to his bravery.

    Guest speaker was Samuel Earle, Youth Leader at Kings Church International, who concluded the ceremony following a two-minute silence.

    Upton Court Grammar School Principal Mercedes Hernández Estrada said “This year we remembered one of our founding students as we reflected on how wars and conflict touch us all. We prayed together for peace in the world and in our own lives.”
