In the week proceeding this year's Armistice Day on November 11, Cirencester Sixth Form College has been running a week of events to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I.

This year's programme has included art installations, lectures and will culminate in a moving remembrance event.

A Remembrance Wall has been built by staff and students to display their memories of family and friends and students experienced a fascinating lecture led by head of humanities, Aidan Scott , about why we honour and remember the dead.

Additionally assistant principal Matt Reynolds has masterminded a soundscape immersive installation where students can experience the sounds from World War I up to the more recent conflicts.

Matt Reynolds explained why the events were so important to the college: “We have a tradition of remembrance in the college which is always very well attended by our students here.

"It’s really impressive how our young people engage with this important and special time of the year.”

As part of the full week a military briefing activity helped the students to explore the psychology of conflict, and a remembrance walk was across the Cotswold Way helped to raise money for the Royal British Legion.

The pinnacle of the college’s remembrance programme takes place on Friday, November 9, at 11am, when the remembrance ceremony takes place.

This event is open to all staff and students who have the opportunity take a few minutes out of their studies and gather outside to remember the fallen.

Led by Reverend Katie Richardson, the event includes an impressive march to the college’s own cenotaph by Uniformed Public Services students and the laying of a wreath by student cadets.
