Catholic Life of the School


The Catholic life of The Cathedral Catholic Primary School is rich in opportunities for children to encounter God and to deepen their relationship with Him as a loving, compassionate Father. On this page we aim to share with you and celebrate many of the elements which make our Catholic school so special and unique. 

Our Parish 

At The Cathedral Catholic Primary School, we have such strong links with our Parish community. We are so lucky to have the Cathedral Church of St Peter church next to our school grounds. Father Stephen and Father Andrew are regular visitors in school. We are delighted that children join the Parish for Mass on a Sunday. Come along and join our celebrations. Mass begins at 10:30am every Sunday.

First Holy Communion and Reconciliation preparation

Sacramental Preparation for Reconciliation and Holy Communion usually takes place when the children are in Year 3 and is led by the catechists of The Parish of The Cathedral. Our children have already received the Sacrament of Reconciliation and their First Holy Communion will take place on Sunday June 25th at 11:00am. 

May Procession

What a wonderful way in which to show our devotion to Our Lady. This May, we joined together as a whole school and with the Parish in unity to process from school to The Cathedral. We celebrated with by sharing a short liturgy which was led by mother's and their children.  The procession was led by the First Communicant children from last year. 

Stations of the Cross

During Lent, the lunchtime prayer group led each class in a reflective Stations of the cross. The children were impeccably behaved and really understood the meaning of Holy Week through drama, song and prayer.

Palm Sunday

Children celebrated Palm Sunday with Parish. Key Stage Two read the part of the crowd and Key Stage One and Reception joined in with Children's liturgy.
