Students at Thomas Clarkson Academy, in Wisbech, paid their own tribute to the fallen during a special Remembrance assembly, on Tuesday.
The entire school came together for a moving ceremony, organised and led by the students.
Year 11 student Ainsley Crowson led a parade of cadets into the centre of the school, followed by prefects and the school’s Young Interpreters, who carried flags representing different nationalities who have been affected by the wars.
Cornet player Andrew Betts, a Year 10 student, played The Last Post and about 1,400 students and members of staff observed the two minutes silence.
Ainsley also read a poem about the importance of wearing a poppy and remembering the soldiers who gave their lives.
