Year 6 had a fantastic time on their residential to Borrowdale, last week.

Their days were fun packed with many physical and mental challenges.

It was lovely to see so many children conquering their fears and giving all activities a try.

The children completed the following:

  • Ghyll Scrambling (negotiating a water rock climb, followed by a plunge pool finale)
  • Canoeing (Games when travelling to the islands on the lake)
  • Rock Climbing
  • Hill walk 

A big thank you to Mrs Watson, Mr Macgregor and Mr Cowell for giving their time and accompanying the Year 6 children on their visit.


A fantastic celebration of readings, costumes and parades here at St Agnes' this week.  The gallery below shows how all children, staff and parents have contributed to amking this another fantastic annual event.

The Queen's Platinum Jubliee 2022

Forest School 2022

Year 1 and Year 5 had their first forest school session, today.  They made jewellry, built dens, balanced on low ropes and decorated wooden logs.  The children were amazing and were incredibly engaged.  Let us hope that the sun is shining again, next week.


We supplement the formal curriculum with a rich and varied range of experiences which come together to supplement the children's education. We offer a wide range of extra-curricular activities and clubs,  run by either school staff or outside providers, giving children the chance to try a range of different activities and mix socially with others. We have special theme days eg. French day or cross-curricular weeks, eg. Health Week,  which give special focus to different areas or celebrate world or national events. Specialist teachers and Sports Coaches visit frequently to enhance the children's knowledge and skills.  As part of the local Sports Partnership with our feeder secondary school, St Thomas More, there are many opportunities for children to compete in tournaments for a variety of sports.

We endeavour to take learning outside of the school grounds, taking advantage of the wonderful variety of opportunities provided by our local area, making use of our recently-acquired minibuses as often as possible. The children are also given the opportunity of spending a few days learning away from home on residential during their time at St Agnes', such as the outdoor activities in the Lake District.
Each year, children will have the opportunity to take part in productions or help to lead Acts of Worship for other members of the community.  Children are also encouraged to take on various roles and responsibilities both in and out of the classroom. eg. acting as monitors, lunchtime Office Helpers, Sports Leaders, Playground Buddies, School Councillors or Year 6 Special Friends to Reception Class.
