Framlingham College have apologised after a student doctored an image of a banner commemorating Britain’s war heroes with a swastika before it was shared online.
The banner, depicting the silhouette of a soldier, was altered to include the Nazi symbol by a student.
The image was then shared with another student, who posted it on social media.
Framlingham College said the pair were immediately suspended as a result of the incident.
Louise North, principal of the college, said: "I apologise unreservedly for the offence caused by the behaviour of these pupils, which contradicts in the strongest terms the ethos of this school.

"In both cases, their actions were completely out of character and both are full of remorse."
