Lenten Service

Last night, we held our annual Passion Service and this year Mrs Webb used a musical depiction of Jesus’ journey to the cross called ‘Born for This’. It was a very a moving piece and the students were amazing. The sensitivity shown by soloists, voices in the narration, musicians and choir made for a beautiful service. Huge congratulations to Mrs Webb and Mr Riches for their hard work and I know that the service will be very well received by the whole school today.

The majority of Year 7 pupils may have already undertaken training whilst at primary school, but we are keen to be part of a secondary school pilot scheme to encourage safer, independent cycling. A timetable of training has been produced and each Year 7 form will undertake a total of 8 hours training over the course of the next half term. Click Read More to see the timetable. Read More
