Mother's Day Mass with St. John's Church
On Sunday 27th March, parish and school joined together to continue our Lenten journey together and celebrate mothers in our families and communities.
Chaplaincy Team read beautifully and choir sang beautifully! Lots of families arrived to celebrate with us, and we were delighted to have a special guest in Mrs Hull!
Thank you and well done to all.
Lest We Forget
We came together for a beautiful Remembrance Service lead by Mrs Bennett.
Thank you to the wonderful readers and to Mrs Harding, Mr Buckle and Mr Simmons for their incredibly moving reenactment of a real soldier's diary,
Kicking off our school year with 2021's Harvest Festival!
Thank you to everyone who donated, we collected a huge amount of food for Foodbank.
The generosity and kindness of all of our school families never ceases to amaze.
Well done to Chaplaincy for leading a beautiful Harvest Festival, inspired by CAFOD’s global Harvest Appeal this year.
St. John's first ever Virtual Christingle!
This year we had our first (and hopefully only) ever Virtual Christingle Service.
It was so lovely to see so many families joining in to sing, celebrate and pray together.
Thank you to the Chaplaincy Team for their debut readings and to Mrs Smith and the choir for recording some socially distant singing for us!
10 Years of St. John's @ Oldfield Park!
On 30th September 2020, we celebrated 10 years of our school being in our lovely new building!
We celebrated across the whole school, with maths all about 10, working out how many children have passed through our gates, drawing our favourite places in school, a disco and a beautiful Mass from Father Christopher.

October, the month of the Rosary
This October, our Chaplaincy Team lead a Rosary Club at lunch times. Children all around the school learned how to pray the Rosary, why it's important and reflected on its importance. They completed Rosary artwork and got to spend some calm and quiet time with their thoughts and prayers.
A special thank you to Jasmine, our resident Rosary leader!
First Holy Communion
Our children make their First Holy Communion in their Parish. Below are some of our Year 3 children who made their First Holy Communion at St Alphege's Church last year.
