All Saints Academy – We Remember
Students at All Saints Academy came together in a powerful service of remembrance on Friday 11th November.
Members of the public joined our Act of Remembrance on a crisp autumn morning, passing a display of ceramic poppies created by students in response to the installation at the Tower of London.
The start of the service was marked by readings of the famous Laurence Binyon poem “For the Fallen” by Year 7 Head Girl, Charlotte Preston, and John McRae’s “In Flanders Field” by Sixth Form Head Girl, Shannon Stack.
Veteran Salvation Army bugler Raymond Jackson, who will be 80 on his next birthday, played The Last Post and the start of the two minute silence was marked by Sixth Form student Shaweer Noorah wearing full World War 1 uniform blowing an authentic 1917 soldier’s whistle.
All members of the Academy family were silent as wreaths were laid for each year group, for the staff and for our governors. The silence was broken by a whistle and Reveille.
Concluding our service, students left to the strains of Elgar’s Nimrod. A fitting end to a solemn and poignant occasion. Our thanks to all who marked this Act of Remembrance with us.

On the 15th April amid a very heavy spring downpour, four A-level students and their teachers set off for a weekend of Geography fieldwork in Dorset. Our hearts sank as we travelled south and the rain continued, but as we arrived at the PGL centre at Osmington Bay, the sky finally cleared and the sun came out. Smiles on faces, we spent the afternoon team building, tackling the fear of the giant swing and the fast paced excitement of aeroball before chilling out in the activity zone that evening over a few games of table tennis and far too many sweets!
The next day we got down to the Geography fieldwork section of the weekend, visiting four different locations along the UNESCO Heritage Jurassic Coast. We tried our hand at beach profiling and land use mapping before tucking into a lunch of fish and chips in Lyme Regis. In the afternoon, we visited a range of different beaches to examine the management put in place to protect this stunning coastline. We were able to collect lots of information and data to apply in our unit 2 exam and have developed a strong understanding of why different parts of the coast are managed in different ways.
On our last day, we visited the famous Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove, where we were able to see and discuss the formation of a range of coastal features. Although we had a tough walk over the cliffs, the views were amazing and we all caught a little sun along the way. Thanks to Miss Room and Mr Walbank for their hard work and giving up their weekend.
