Kintbury April 2018

This afternoon. ten Year 10 students will be heading to St Cassian’s retreat centre for the ‘Kintbury Experience’. They will follow an expertly planned programme of activities that will enable them to learn more about themselves, strengthen their relationships and gain a greater awareness of God’s presence in their lives.
Thanks especially to the two staff members giving up their weekend to take the students away for this fantastic experience!

Rome Trip

During the Easter holidays, 34 students from Year 8 to 13 went on a school trip to Rome. Students were lucky enough to have Mass with Pope Francis in St. Peter’s Square, which is a once in a life-time event opportunity and will be something neither students or staff will forget.

Students also toured the historic Colosseum and enjoyed a walking tour of Palatine Hill and the Roman Forum. They enjoyed exploring the beautiful St. Peter’s Basilica and visiting some of the most iconic sightseeing places such as the Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps. They even got the opportunity to cheer those on running the Rome Marathon!

Our students have expressed how incredible they found the trip and were a true credit to our school whilst in Rome.
