Catholic Life


Catholic life at St Albert the Great school is flourishing. We work closely with our parish and local community to help enrich the lives of others whilst enriching our own faith. So far this year, we have celebrated Women’s World Day of Prayer, partaken in a moving Easter Liturgy using the Stations of the Cross the children created. During October, we made a decade of the Rosary and used it to pray the rosary together as a school, participated in a Creation ‘WOW’ day in which each class studied a day from the Creation story and did work around it, supported the Christmas Present Appeal run by the Salvation Army by donating new, unused gifts and raised money to support the parish appeal for the Children of Bethlehem.

Our Lady Queen Of All Creation

As a Catholic School we enjoy working closely with Fr Kim, Assistant Priest of Our Lady Queen Of All Creation.  The Junior classes visit the church for mass once regularly as well as attending and participating in whole school celebrations at the beginning of a new term and for Holy Days of Obligation.  The Infant classes and Foundation Stage make regular visits to the Church as they begin to learn more about our faith.

At St Albert the Great School we are proud of our community links both locally and internationally such as the support we gave to the Children of Bethlehem appeal run by the parish. The children voted to support the parish appeal in the run up to Christmas so Foundation Stage and Key Stage One had retiring collections at the end of their Nativity performances which raised almost £300.
