Students read several poignant tributes in the Ipswich-based college's auditorium, before the band, organised by the public services department, played a moving rendition of The Last Post.

A wreath was also laid in front of veterans.

Public services student Selina Perkins, 17, said: "This was a time to reflect and think about those who have fought for our country. I felt a mixture of sadness and pride."

Fellow student Devon Spalding, 17, added: "We flew the flag of remembrance with respect."
