P upils joined the Diocesan Pilgrimage to Walsingham on Saturday 30 September. This wonderful event enabled parishes and schools to come together for sharing of faith, reflection and prayer. The day started early with a 6.30am departure and included visits to the Catholic and Anglican shrines to Our Lady. Our pupils took part in all aspects of the pilgrimage with enthusiasm and were a credit to the school. Special thanks to Mrs Holder, Chaplaincy Coordinator, and Mr Wicker, Curriculum Leader for Religious Education, for leading the visit.
Parents of pupils currently in primary schools are invited to see our pupils and staff in action on a typical working day. Two guided tours will take place at 9.30am and 11.30am. Please book your place by ringing Mrs Martland on 887 3240.
