75th anniversary of VE Day

To mark the 75th Anniversary of VE Day and to celebrate our national heroes, here’s a special message from our uniformed services students. Ordinarily, our students would mark occasions such as this with a parade or by attending events in the community, however the Covid-19 lockdown restrictions meant that this was not possible.
