During this Easter season we have been reflecting on the Stations of the Resurrection which begin with the appearance of the Risen Lord to Mary Magdalene and end with Pentecost. The Stations of the Resurrection emphasise the hopeful aspect of the Christian story and can serve to deepen an appreciation of the Easter season. 
Each class made models to represent the Stations and, with the help of Fr Richard and Fr Reg Gray, spent some time focussing in a prayerful way on their meanings. 


Reception Class learnt about Advent and how we prepare our hearts for Jesus. They took part in a Christingle service in which they made their own Christingle. The class learnt what the orange, ribbon, candle and sweets of the Christingle represent. The children enjoyed selecting the sweets to represent the four seasons. The class were very good at remembering that the lit candle represent God as the light of the world and his love for us all. 

Start of School Year Mass 

Miss Parry and Father Reg worked really hard enabling us to celebrate a whole school mass in line with all the government and church guidance. It was lovely to see the whole community together, safely socially distanced outside of course. 

KS1 Nativity 

A huge ‘congratulations’ to all the staff and pupils of our infant department for a joyful and enthusiastic rendition of the Christmas story. The children sang, danced, narrated and acted beautifully and parents, grandparents and friends should be rightly proud of their achievements. Well done to all. 

KS2 Carol Service 

A huge ‘well done’ and ‘thank you’ to all who made our KS2 Carol Service such a beautiful occasion. We have had so many compliments from parents and carers and parishioners who came to the service last. We were all very proud of our singers, dancers, musicians, narrators and actors.  

St Francis' Feast Day 

The whole school celebrated the feast day of St Francis by visiting the Welsh National Museum of St Fagan's. Several coaches were required in order to transport the entire school for a fascinating day. Everyone from the new Reception children up to the adult helpers enjoyed investigating the changes seen in Welsh buildings over the years; from huddling together in Iron Age roundhouses to stretching out in Tudor townhouse luxury, a great deal was learnt in every dwelling. There was even a farmyard taking care of some animals - St Francis would have been pleased! 

Education Mass 

Pupils, staff and governors attended the annual Education Mass at Clifton Cathedral and the children performed an offertory dance. The Mass was a lovely celebration of Catholic education and brought together schools from all over the Diocese.
