School tours available on the first Wednesday of every month. Come along for a short talk from the Headteacher followed by a tour of the school. Book your place via the School Tours page. St Scholastica’s welcomes children of all faiths and none. You do not have to be a Catholic to attend our school.

Catholic Life of the School

‘An education in the fullness of humanity should be the defining feature of catholic schools.’- Pope Francis

All through the year, the Church family celebrates the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. We also celebrate feasts and saints. St Scholastica’s pupils, parents, and staff enjoy a school journey through the Church’s year. Our entrance, hall, corridor, and classroom displays reflect the time of year in the Church’s calendar.
Ordinary Times
In Ordinary times we use green to represent life and growth. We continue to live each day in the presence of our Lord and follow St Scholastica’s model to worship God and do our best.
Each child took home their own rosary beads to pray the rosary with their families. Each class prays the joyful, sorrowful, glorious and luminous mysteries of the rosary throughout October. Mrs. Brierley hosts a lunch time rosary club for KS2 for the month of October. We remember we can ask Mary to pray for us.

All students attend mass at our parish Church for All Souls Day and we remember those who sacrificed their lives during the war by taking a moment of silence on Remembrance Day. We remember that Jesus also sacrificed his life for us and that through him we have eternal life. Each class creates some arts and crafts linked to Remembrance Day. We all gather in the hall for a whole school collective worship.

Let us pray for all who suffer as a result of conflict, and ask that God may give us peace:
for the service men and women
who have died in the violence of war,
each one remembered by and known to God;
may God give peace.
God give peace.


Christ the King Sunday celebrates Christ as King and Lord of the universe.

This Feast Day is celebrated on the final Sunday of Ordinary Time, the final Sunday before Advent begins.

Jesus is a good king; he looks over us like a caring shepherd, making sure that we are safe and protecting us from harm unlike other dominant rulers. He knows everything about us, there is nothing we can hide.

Every year to celebrate we attend a church service.

The Season of Advent
Begins four Sundays before Christmas and ends on December 24. Advent has a twofold character. It is the season to prepare for Christmas when Christ’s first coming is remembered, and it is the season when that remembrance directs the mind and heart to await Christ’s Second Coming at the end of time. For these two reasons, the season of Advent is a period for devout and joyful expectation. We use purple to symbolize waiting and importance.

Every year to mark the beginning of Advent we have Advent day. The children come to school dressed in purple clothes, the Liturgical color of Advent and waiting. We make Advent wreaths for our prayer tables in the prayer garden. Fr Kingsley comes to school and preforms a blessing of the wreaths. Then each class creates an Advent Kindness calendar to help us prepare for the birth of baby Jesus.

In the afternoon each class has the opportunity to create an Advent craft to take home to help themselves and their families prepare for the birth of baby Jesus.
