SIXTH FORM APPLICATIONS FOR SEPTEMBER 2018.
We celebrated fantastic A level results in 2017 where on average pupils achieved a quarter of a grade higher than their predictions which allowed them so many choices in terms of employment and university. This was one of the best progress figures for any comprehensive school sixth form in the whole West Midlands area. Application Forms and an Information Booklet for the Sixth Form will be available on this evening.
We are now in the second week of the season of Lent. Lent is the forty days of preparation before the greatest Christian festival, Easter. We have a service on Ash Wednesday where we remind ourselves of the three duties of the Christian during Lent, Prayer, Fasting and Alms-giving. This year our alms-giving efforts will be for CAFOD (Catholic Fund for Overseas Development), KIDS (a local charity helping families of children with disabilities) and Fr. Hudson’s which is the social care agency of the Archdiocese of Birmingham.
