Archivist Jo Halford and Alumnae Officer Polly Murray were delighted to interview Mrs Helen Milliken née Western earlier in the year. This footage, along with songs from the Music Department, a thought and prayer from Reverend Simon Taylor and readings from the pupils were shown as part of our Remembrance Service at school on 11th November 2020. This year, due to the lockdown, we were unable to mark the 75th anniversary of Victory in Europe Day in May, so instead, we made it our focus during the Remembrance Service on Armistice Day.

Below is the interview with Mrs Milliken.
