Pupils are given taste of life in the war years.
Members of theatre group Second Thoughts set up a 1940s kitchen with authentic food and utensils.
Stratford Mayor Juliet Short got into the swing of things and dressed in army uniform.
The exhibition was the idea of town councillor and Royal British Legion member Clive Thomas, who said he wanted to impress on young people the importance of remembrance.
He said: "The exhibition went better than we could have hoped.
"School children from The Willows and St Gregory's schools came to look around and a lot more children came with their parents. We are hoping to do this again, perhaps just before Remembrance Day."
