STUDENTS and staff at Ark Acton Academy gathered on Friday to mark Remembrance Day.

They were joined by residents of Acton Care Centre and alumni from the 202 Regiment.

In common with Ark schools in Birmingham, Hastings, London and Portsmouth, students stood for a moment of silence to honour those who lost their lives in conflicts past and present.

The service also included a performance by Year 8 student Bennett Smith, who played The Last Post. The school raised money for the Royal British Legion as part of the day's events.
