Y7 students receive confirmation

Last week, students from Year 7 received the Sacrament of Confirmation at St Austin's Church, they were a credit to themselves and the school, well done to Isabella, Malachi, Maja, Bruno, David, Ameerah, Caitlyn, Maja and Katie.
We were delighted to welcome Bishop Stephen Wright, a former pupil of Blessed William Howard, to celebrate this special Mass and confirm the children. They prepared for this special time by having several lessons and reflections as well as time to think about their faith journey. Students received their certificates and had a celebration in the Chapel.
