We have very strong links with St John the Evangelist Catholic Church in Bridgnorth. Father Iain
Griffiths regularly attends school to lead the children in worship, and the children take part in many services at church throughout the year.
In the Spring Term each year group attends St John’s Church for a Mass with the local community.
In the Summer Term, each class prepare a Collective worship and go to church for the session.
All families receive a copy of the “Wednesday Word” which delivers the Sunday Gospel through School every Wednesday.
Pupils from Year 3 and children from the parish are supported in their preparations for their First Holy Communion which takes place in June each year.
School collaborates with the Catholic school s from Telford and Wrekin and Shropshire.
Annually, Year 6 pupils attend a “Cathedral Day Mass” at Shrewsbury Cathedral where they take part in a celebration of their achievements and look forward to moving onto a new stage in their lives. On the same day, all Catholic Schools then join together for a picnic and games.
