A school in Bucks created a ‘stunning’ display with thousands of poppies to commemorate Remembrance Day.

The Beacon School pupils crafted an outdoor display using more than 3,000 individual poppies to honour the Armistice Day.

The project was initiated by the school’s head of art Michelle Jackson as a symbol to commemorate Armed forces and their families.

It was draped over the entrance of the main School House building, making it visible to the public on Amersham Road and looking striking when lit up in the dark.

Headmaster Nick Baker said: “A huge thank you to all our Beacon Community for contributing to produce and fit such a powerful Poppy Display, it looks fantastic! A special mention to Michelle Jackson, our Head of Art, for her creative genius and vision.”

The school is also raising funds for The Royal British Legion as part of the poppy appeal.
