Lochnagar Project

Students from a variety of year groups have been learning more about the First World War by taking part in the Lochnagar Project. The Lochnagar Crater is the largest crater ever made by man in anger and is now a unique memorial to all those who suffered in the Great War. It is dedicated to peace, fellowship and reconciliation between all nations who fought on the Western Front. 

Students are creating an online cemetery to commemorate in particular those soldiers who died on 1 July 1916 at La Boisselle, each student researching an individual 'unknown' soldier in an attempt to make them 'known'. This important project will allow our students to feel a personal connection to one individual soldier and help put the events of the war into context before some of them visit the Battlefields next year.
