On Wednesday 9th October, we celebrated our annual Foundation Service at Southwell Minster Cathedral.
All staff, members of the governing Body and representatives of Cathedral Chapter gathered to welcome our new Year 7 students and new members of staff. Representatives of our new Student leaders (Year 11 House Captains and 6th Form Head Team) were formally commissioned and Year 7 students received a ‘welcome goody bag’ containing a school prayer book, Gideons New Testament and Psalms, school pen and sweets! We were treated to singing from Year 7 as well as our choristers. Mr Parris gave a marvellous address about the history of the school and some of the people who had sat in the pews before us. It was a really lovely way to begin the year and to dedicate our year ahead to God in prayerful reflection.
