Pupils at Blessed George Napier RC School in Banbury have helped transform a school corridor into a World War One trench to commemorate the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War.

The project has seen pupils get creative as they remember those who lost their lives during the conflict. The exhibition includes interactive displays to recreate what life was like for soldiers fighting in the trenches. Neil Edwards, history teacher, said: “The students have been really enthusiastic about the project and spent a lot of time on it. It creates a fantastic atmosphere.” Pictured are pupils Serena Clayton, Holly Castle and Saskia Mollard and, front, Elliott Phillips and Aodan Telford.
