‘They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.’
For the Fallen, Laurence Binyon
At the Undershaw campus, students and staff around the school fell silent in our collective Act of Remembrance as pupils gathered in their tutor groups to mark the 11am silence and time of reflection.
Further afield in nearby Haslemere, a group of our Post 16 students embarked upon a chaperoned outing as ambassadors for Undershaw to join the Armistice Day memorial service.
Haslemere Mayor Simon Dear was so delighted to meet the students that he is arranging a visit to Undershaw is the near future to tour the school, meet the students and staff, and discuss how we can further our community links.
At Undershaw we are incredibly proud of our local community and the enrichment it offers the students throughout the school. We take every opportunity to engage with the community and are always on the lookout for partnership opportunities.
We are fortunate to be connected to many wonderful local businesses and individuals that share our passion and ethos around Diversity and Inclusion. Through this shared philosophy they support us in a number of ways, for example, by offering work experience to our older students, by sponsoring our social spaces, or by volunteering time to the various educational programmes on offer around the school.
