Celebrating 60 Years…

Thank you to everybody who contributed to the great success of Friday’s 60th anniversary of the school celebrations. The evening was superbly attended and was enjoyed immensely by all. Over the next few days we will post videos of some of the pupils’ work which was screened on the night. We hope this serves as a fitting memory of such a wonderful evening!

La Meteo France…

Pupils in Years 5 and 6 have been learning about the weather in French. Under the guidance of our French teacher, Madame Birtwistle, the children have learnt how to say and read different types of weather and, following this, wrote their own weather report. The video below was filmed in a recent lesson and indicates the excellent linguistic skills of our older pupils. Well done!

Fifty Fabulous Years!

A special mass was held in our parish last night. Father Peter celebrated 50 years of life as a priest and led a huge congregation through an evening of memorable hymns, reflective readings and thought-provoking anecdotes. Rarely has the church been so full and this is an indication of the huge impact which Father Peter has had on the parish of Our Lady of Dolours. Below are a few photographs and a video which features eight pupils from Mr Cooper’s class leading a rendition of Father Peter’s favourite hymn. We hope for many further years of worship led by our wonderful priest.


We are extremely excited to announce that a new blog launches today. Mr Cooper’s pupils (Class K) have spent the past two weeks creating their own ‘micro-blog’ to represent the school in their own words. The children researched, planned, wrote and edited their own content for the blog. Please follow, comment and read the blog! The address is:
