Today was a red letter day for our Year Eights as they tentatively experienced life as Aquinas pupils. There was great excitement at Reception at around 9 o’clock this morning as the first pupils came through the doors, greeted by the Vice Principal, tutors, Year Head, senior teachers and prefects. Some mums and dads were there (some with a tear in the eye) to wish their children well as they strode towards the next stage of their education.

The sense of anticipation was palpable and as a school community we look forward to developing the promise that these young people hold. We wish them well.
