Our Worship


The school celebrated Epiphany on Friday 5th January 2018,  in a beautifully decorated SS John Fisher and Thomas More Church. Father Richard reminded us that we should be like one of the Wise Men and shine out as a follower of Christ. 

The words of one of the Bidding prayers helped to remind us of the important role all of us has:

The Magi brought precious gifts to the Child Jesus. We bring the gift of ourselves

to the Child in the manger and ask Jesus to bless us at the start of this New Year.

Christmas celebrations

 Our celebrations for Christmas were started by the children retelling the wonderful story of Jesus' birth. Year 1 and 2 used music and dance to tell the us the story of the "Camel's Arms". The Reception class presented "Our First Nativity", and years 3 -6 and the school choir lead us in a touching Christmas Carol service; the singing of "O Come, all ye faithful ", was particularly memorable. 

Advent candles

We started advent when the youngest member of the Lighthouse group lit the first candle of the advent wreath. This was followed by other members of the group explaining the meaning behind the candles as we started to count down to Christmas. 

Remembrance day 


Jamie McKenzie in year 6 created this piece of art as part of a reflection for Remembrance Sunday and was used by the parish of SS John Fisher and Thomas More for their Remembrance day service. 



All Saints Day Mass, Wednesday 1st November

Thank you to all those who read so well, sung so joyfully and members of the Lighthouse group who prepared prayers for this special Mass which was enjoyed by a large number of people from the Parish. During the service the Special prayer for All Saints' Day was shared.



Start of Year Mass. Friday 22nd September.

At our start of the year Mass at SS John Fisher and Thomas More Church, Father Richard blessed our children leaders; the Lighthouse children, the School Council and the House Captains. 



Crowning of Mary, Monday 22nd May


In October we celebrated the Holy Rosary and part of our celebration was to learning a sung version of the Hail Mary.

Thy Kingdom Come.

Join the global wave of prayer between 25th May - 4th June. Catholics will join with Christians around the world to pray that their friends, families and neighbours will come to know Jesus. You may like to pray the Novena.

 " We can say that God’s heart is touched by our intercession, yet in reality he is always there first.  What our intercession achieves is that his power,  his love and his faithfulness are shown ever more  clearly in the midst of the people."  (Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium 283)
