  • Remembrance Day

    Staff and students at Upton Court Grammar School commemorated Remembrance Day on Friday 11 November 2016, in an emotional ceremony led by the Principal.

    Mrs Hernández Estrada invoked memory of fallen war heroes from World Wars 1 and 2, but also of victims of more recent conflicts. Students were moved to hear of the plight of an Angolan family that fled to the mountains for three years, only to return to their village destroyed by years of civil war. A group of students also presented their perspective of remembrance, and a two minute silence was observed.

    Father Alistair Stewart, Team Vicar of Upton cum Chalvey church led prayers, and laid a poppy wreath with the Principal and students, honouring Upton Court Grammar School’s students that had died in battle over the past century.

    Principal Mercedes Hernández Estrada said “On Remembrance day, we honour those who gave their lives to achieve peace but also those who maintain it by resolving conflict and bringing normality back into people’s lives. We lay a wreath under our school memorial and remember our own.”
