Our Year 5 and 6 pupils  had a unique and enriching experience on their visit to Westminster Cathedral.  Our students attended a special Latin Mass at this iconic London landmark. The visit not only allowed our students to witness the grandeur of Westminster Cathedral but also provided them with a rare opportunity to participate in a traditional Latin Mass, fostering an appreciation for the rich historical and religious heritage associated with this ancient language. 

Christmas Nativity and Carols - December 2023


On Wednesday 13th December, parents and members of our parish gathered to watch our KS2 pupils deliver an outstanding carol concert, Our pupils did, in the words of one of their carols produce ‘something extra special’ at Five Precious Wounds.


On Thursday 14th December our youngest pupils retold the Christmas Story in their own unique ways. Our youngest, Nursery and Reception, pupils stole the show with their outstanding performances. Every line was learned and songs were sung with great joy and enthusiasm.


This was followed in the afternoon by our KS1 pupils who performed ‘It’s Chr-i-i-istmas!’ A joyful and energy fuelled performance by all of the pupils who sang their hearts out to some familiar tunes. Each performance gave us all a very clear message that although we celebrate the fun of Christmas we must not forget the true meaning which is celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ and to love, cherish and bring peace to all

The Travelling Crib at Lambeth Palace - December 2023


Year 2 and Year 3 had a fantastic adventure to Lambeth Palace where the experienced the Nativity through the eyes of different key figures. We spoke with a Wise Man who had followed the star and had bought some gifts for Jesus, a woman who was travelling to Bethlehem with her donkeys and had come across a couple also travelling in the same direction. We met Elizabeth, Mary's cousin, who spoke of her son John and how he would proclaim the Good News. We also met a shepherd who had seen the star and heard the angels announcing that a baby had been born. Lastly, we met Mary who spoke of how the angel Gabriel came and visited her. A fantastic experience that Year 2 and Year 3 had a great time at and learnt lots about this special time of year.

Advent Mass at Five Precious Wounds Monday 28th November 2022


The whole school attended Five Precious Wounds Church to mark the beginning of Advent. Our Mini Vinnies read beautifully and bought up the Offertory. They were also called up during Fr. Tony's homily to admire and discuss the Advent Wreath. The children impressed Fr. Tony by telling him that the wreath is in the shape of a circle because it symbolises God's everlasting love for us. This week when we light the purple candle on the Advent Wreath, like the prophets in the Old Testament, we hope for a Messiah to save us from the sin in the world. We anticipate our Savior’s arrival.
