A sense of history is very important to Isleworth & Syon, as we aim to be a school which looks to the future while ensuring that we never forget our past. For this reason, over the next four years, the school will commemorate each of the 81 individuals that lost their lives during World War I, on the 100-year anniversary of their deaths.

On each anniversary, you will be able to click on an individual’s name to view some information about them. Individuals whose anniversary falls today will have a ★ by their name.

Stay tuned to our Twitter feed (@IsleworthSyon) for more commemorations in the next few years.

If you are interested in learning more about this topic, we recommend checking out the Isleworth 390 project, set up by local residents as a means to discover more about the 390 Isleworth residents who tragically lost their lives in World War I.
