This week, we welcomed our new Reception  children to St. Francis: they have all settled very happily and are quickly making new friends and adapting to the St. Francis of Assisi school day.

On Monday morning, we joined other schools in the Diocese of Arundel and Brighton to celebrate Mass for the start of the new school year, led by Bishop Richard.  The Mass was live-streamed from Arundel Cathedral. It was wonderful see the children participating from their classrooms reverently and with so much enthusiasm.
