Farewell Year 6
Today we say goodbye to our beautiful Year 6 children. We are so proud of the way they have kept going and risen to all the challenges they have faced this year. We will miss their steady determination. Thank you for making us smile.

They have made this film to share their talents; a few of their final thoughts and some memories from years past. Get the tissues ready!

Sunday Mass
Father Solomon will be opening the church for Mass on Sunday at 11am. Visitors must wear masks and follow the one way system. Children must have a parent with them. There will be stewards to show you where to sit and what to do.
Here is a video showing you how the church will be different to keep us safe.

You can also  join in mass with Father Tim from St Chad’s Cathedral each Thursday at 9.30am by clicking here and scrolling down to the Live Stream link.
