Students planted a tree to mark 100 years since the first remembrance ceremony in Britain.
Staff and pupils at Marshland High School planted the 'remembrance tree', a cherry tree, outside the front of the school in West Walton.
A school spokesman said: "We have marked 100 years since the first remembrance ceremony by planting our own remembrance tree.
"The cherry tree planted at the front of the school can be seen by anyone visiting and by all the students as they arrive."
The tree comes after a group of students raised enough money to install a centenary bench in the playground.

"The school is grateful for the continued support of Gary Haime at 2gether Insurance, who kindly donated the tree."
