The war memorial can be seen to the east of the school (left side of the school in this 2001 photo).

The Rolls of Honour for both World Wars are published in books.

The following inscription is carved round the top of the base.



DOLCE ET DECORUM EST PRO PATRIA MORT
( The last line from Wilfred Owen's poem called Dolce et decorum est. Meaning it is sweet and right to die for your country)






AT THE GOING DOWN OF THE SUN AND IN THE MORNING WE WILL REMEMBER THEM.
(Lines from the poem For the fallen by Laurence Binyon (1869-1943))
