Welcome to Bishop Walsh Catholic School part of the St. John Paul II Multi-Academy

Principal’s Message

Week beginning 12th June 2017 (6/11/2017)


This year we are combining two great events in the one night.  They are designed to provide a ‘good night out’ as well as raising funds for our parents’ association, the Bishop Walsh Association (BWA).   

As part of our annual ‘BFEST’ there will be pupils performing music all around the school site.  We are also currently planning our first ever school run to be held at 6pm on this BFEST evening. We want this to be a huge event with all students participating. Ideally we also want to involve parents, families and friends of every student to enter the run and participate. At the end of the Run there will be refreshments served on the playground along with BFEST providing entertainment. There will be a £5.00 entry fee to the run and all the funds raised will be spent on items that THE PUPILS of Bishop Walsh Catholic School decide on in their respective year councils.

The Run will be a 5Km course that will not cross any roads and will be stewarded. Participants do not have to run but it is anticipated that many will take this as an opportunity to race, but if they choose, entrants can walk skip or even hop the whole 5Km!  Thank you to the BWA, Mr. Carroll, our Acting Site Manager and Mr. Turner, our Head of Music, for organising this event.

An entry form for the School Run can be found on this page to the right of this message.
