July 2016

Abby Barnes and Eve Briddick have won a Year 7 Spanish competition to create a Spanish presentation on Free Time.

Check out their fantastic work below.

24 St John's students have had the honour and privilege of representing not only their school and Co Durham but also the nation at the Commemoration of the Centenary of the Battle of the Somme at the Thiepval Monument in France on 1st July. It was a sombre and deeply poignant event throughout which our young people displayed the greatest dignity and respect. A truly memorable and historic occasion which they will remember for the rest of their lives.

An overcast Friday in June saw the bright stars of Year 11 say a farewell to their GCSE years at our annual Celebration Day. The day kicked off with a wonderful Mass, concelebrated by five of our parish priests and well attended by our Year 11 students and staff, and two hundred family members. Formal presentations to the year group were led by our guest speaker, Sara Davies MBE.
