St. Boniface's Catholic College weekly Blog

What a relief to be back in school after rather a fraught Easter! The pupils have been absolutely superb and a real credit not only to the College but also to you the parents and carers. I have been really proud of them and the way they have handled themselves, so a big thank you!

I would also like to formally take this opportunity to thank parents and carers for all their kind words of support and encouragement over these unusual times. Please rest assured that all staff at the College are firmly committed to ensuring that each pupil, male and female, receives the best possible opportunities to do of their best – be that GCSEs, A levels or  working in classes.

Staff have remained committed and professional throughout and are a real asset to the College.

I shall of course continue to keep you as up to date with events as is possible and must apologise again to those of you who have found out information via the media before receiving our letter. Our new website, now only a few weeks away from going live, will certainly help with electronic communications and with the speed with which we can communicate with you.


Year 7 have had a great start to the new term with some awards handed out in assembly this week for excellent effort. 

A special mention to Jack who raised over £40 for Cafod during lent, by washing up! What a fantastic and thoughtful idea, if only he had told me earlier!

Next week 7K will be presenting their assembly to the year group.

Year 7 are very much looking forward to finalising their Curriculum Enrichment details on Monday, where they will meet with their group leader to discuss final plans. I'm sure everybody is excited about the activities they will be taking part in!

A quick reminder please that all students should be adhering to the hair and uniform requirements. I appreciate your cooperation with this.

A final note to say how impressed I have been with this year group over the past few months. It is very easy to become "comfortable" as they settle into their first year; however, the students have been focused and committed to learning and this is so pleasing. On behalf of the year 7 tutors, I would also like to say a huge thank you for parental support. It is such a great benefit for the students and their future.


The Year 11 Leavers’ mass is on Wednesday 1st May at St Peter’s Church at 2.30pm. We would very much like to see any parents there who can make it at that time.

Loving Lord, we need the power of your Spirit in our lives to build on what is good, and to help change what needs to be changed. We pray that we may be faithful in responding to your call to grow as the people you have called us to be, that we may ring out your praises through the way we live each day.
