War Memorials Trust was contacted by St John’s Catholic Comprehensive School in May 2015. The school was keen to work with the Trust on two events. The first was the school’s commemorations of the end of World War II. Pupils in Years 7 to 9 had been focusing on this and the school planned to hold a History Day with various speakers coming in to help pupils better understand the war and its impact. The second was a Careers Day for Year 9 pupils, at which War Memorials Trust was asked to speak to pupils about careers in the heritage sector.
Abbot’s Hill School was keen to ensure pupils knew about the local area’s experiences during the First World War, especially with the war’s centenary approaching. With an unusual war memorial being situated close to the school, staff felt that working with War Memorials Trust would be a useful way of getting pupils to understand some of their local history.
