Parish Community

We are part of the community of Catholics in Glossop comprising the two parishes of Saint Mary Crowned and All Saints.

Our Parish church of Saint Mary Crowned is served by Parish Priest Father Martin Sylvester who is a regular visitor to our school.

The First Reconciliation and Holy Communion Sacramental programme is run by Mrs Rudd on behalf of the parish. Our teaching of Religious Education is an important part of that preparation.

Reception Class visit to Church

19 December 2022

During Advent Key Stage 2 led a very beautiful and reverent Christingle Service. We joined together as a school and parish community at St Mary Crowned Church and to celebrate the birth of Jesus and to once again focus on God’s love for us all. The children were simply wonderful. They read eloquently and sang with such enthusiasm and gusto. A particularly moving aspect of the evening was when the Church lights were switched off and the light of the Christingles provided a real poignant moment for us all. We thanked Father Martin for presiding over the service and to parents and friends, for their kind words and generosity. A particular mention of thanks to the parishioners who came into school in advance of the service to support the children in making the Christingles.

Lent 2021

Working with the art subject Lead of St Philip Howard, our Year 6 pupils created a beautiful Stations of the Cross installation using clay. The designs had first of all been carved by art students at the partner secondary school and were then painted by our children. The artwork is now a permanent feature in the main corridor of school.
