Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her. May her soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
We are deeply saddened by the death of HM Queen Elizabeth II.
Today our school community spent time praying, reflecting and remembering Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. We gave thanks for her dedication and devoted services to our nation, the Commonwealth and indeed the World community.
We will have a book of Remembrance in our Lower Primary site entrance where messages of condolence can be recorded, and floral tributes may be left. Our book of Remembrance, will be sent to the Mayor of Bedford Borough Council where it will be bound with other similar documents and stored in a local archive along with those of other public services.
