Geography Trip to Suffolk

St Mary’s geography students travelled to Suffolk for a three day field trip as part of their preparations for their summer exams. 

During their time their students showed tremendous curiosity and endeavour in two geographical studies. These included identifying the impacts rural rebranding was having on the local area in Flatford Mill.

On the second day the group travelled to Ipswich to identify and analyse the changes regeneration had on Ipswich since the 1950’s. They showed respect to locals as they considered the ethical implications of their chosen study.

The Geographers had a fantastic time and This experience should give all platform for further success in their studies this year.

Thanks to Mr McAllister, Mrs Rosario and the FSC team for all your help.

Beginning of Year Academic Mass with Archbishop Peter

Along with other Catholic schools and Colleges, CTK Students, Chaplains, the Vice Principal and Chair of Governors represented the College at the Education Commission’s Beginning of the Academic Year Mass in St George’s Cathedral on Tuesday 11th September.

Archbishop Peter was the main celebrant who spoke about the importance of Catholic Education that provided the opportunity of developing the whole person. Some of the students pictured below with Archbishop Peter were also involved in the Choir that consisted of a range of schools. It was a joyful and uplifting occasion that cemented the sense of being part of a wider family of Catholic schools and Colleges in the Archdiocese of Southwark.
