Pupils and staff at a Kenton secondary school planted a swathe of poppies in commemoration of 100 years since the end of the First World War.
Every pupil and staff member at St Gregory’s Catholic Science College, in Donnington Road, made a poppy, onto which they wrote a prayer of remembrance.
More than 1,300 poppies were placed in the ground around the school’s remembrance garden.
The school held a week of assemblies around the garden to mark the centenary of Armistice Day.
Year 7 pupils began the tribute on the morning of November 12, offering prayers of thanks to those who gave their lives in the Great War and all subsequent conflicts.
