A Prayer to Saint Therese De Lisieux for Guidance


Dear St. Therese,
guide me in your Little Way,
so that I may ascend to the heights and happiness

Of Heaven.



This extract from the prayer to Saint Therese De Lisieux asks for our guidance so that we may ascend to the glory of Heaven. There are times in our lives where we all need extra help and guidance and as we approach the examination seasons for Y11 and Y13, I would ask you to remember our students in your prayers and ask that they are guided to the path God has chosen for them.


It's been a wonderfully busy half-term and I know the staff and students are looking forward to the holiday next week! Our Y7 students have made an excellent start and we are now starting to prepare our older students for their practice examinations next half-term.


I would like to thank all of you for your ongoing support for our lovely school. We have had lots of visitors this week and all have commented on the warm, friendly and purposeful atmosphere in the building. We are proud to be a family school with a strongly rooted Catholic ethos and a dedicated team of staff.


May I wish all of you a happy and peaceful half-term break.


God Bless


Helen Burrows
