Oswestry School became one of the latest organisations in September to enhance their support to the Armed Forces community by re-signing the Armed Forces Covenant.

The Headmaster of the school, Mr Julian Nodd, signed the covenant alongside Lieutenant Colonel Stuart Hitchman from 11th Signal & West Midlands Brigade Army West Midlands.

During the event the Oswestry School Combined Cadet Force (CCF) contingent paraded the School Colours, led by Cadet RSM Noad, and were inspected by Lieutenant Colonel Hitchman.

As part of their covenant commitment the school are pledging to support members of the Armed Forces community who may consider sending, or who already have, children at Oswestry School.

The school had previously signed the covenant at a formal ceremony at RAF Shawbury, but their ongoing commitment to uphold the key principles of the covenant meant they were in a position to develop their pledges further.

The Armed Forces Covenant is a pledge or promise from the nation to those who serve or who have served, and their families, to do all they can to ensure they are treated fairly and not disadvantaged in their day-to-day lives.

It is signed by businesses and charitable organisations who wish to demonstrate their support for the Armed Forces community.  The Covenant brings together the government, businesses, local authorities, charities and the public in order to support those who serve.
