A huge thank you to year 12 who have been bringing in items on a weekly basis to support the local charity Alternatives which offers support to young families and to people who have had experienced a miscarriage offering them counselling. It is great to see our pupils recognizing the plight of others and being so willing to offer help and support. They are truly putting into practice the teachings of the Gospel’s Lk 6:31 “Do to others as you would have them do to you.”
Staff and students (who are not on the school’s network) can watch the speeches by clicking HERE.
Voting for staff, and students in Years 11, 12 and 13 takes place in the Sixth Form Common Room during TCT, break and lunch on Friday 24th March.
This February half-term 24 Sixth Form students, accompanied by 3 members of staff, skied in the Italian resort of Courmayeur. With plenty of snowfall in the weeks leading up to the trip, we were blessed with blue skies and sunshine for the majority of the trip. A fantastic time was had by all with lots of falls, laughter and progress made by all.
It is hoped that February 2018 will see a similar trip go ahead. Watch this space!

On Friday 27th January, some Y13 and Y9 students were lucky enough to listen to a live webcast from Holocaust survivor Mala Tribich. This was an event in which over 500 schools were involved, not just in the UK, but globally. Mala told the emotive story of her life in the Jewish Ghetto and later in two different concentration camps. The students found the experience very moving, especially the story she told of her cousin who went missing and Mala never found out what happened to her. Y9 ended the session by saying their main message to others is for everyone to appreciate how serious the Holocaust was and how it should be remembered today.
