The school has very close links to St. Stephen's Church and the local community with a number of events through the year. Please click here to visit St. Stephen's Parish website.
Father Christopher, our local priest, is on the Academy Council at the school and supports the staff with planning of Liturgical celebrations throughout the school year.
We have a programme of special Masses in place which are led by the children across the school.
During the year the children from our four Houses lead special Family Masses at a weekend.

Children carried a Bible, candles, flowers and prayers on the journey.
