Message From the Archbishop for Year 11 & Year 13 Leavers

Dear Headteachers, 


I hope you and your school are well and settling in to the ‘new normal’.


In a recent meeting with the Chaplains a few weeks ago,  Archbishop John Wilson kindly agreed to send schools a video for the Year 11 & Year 13 leavers given the concern shown over their well-being and disruption to their learning due to the pandemic.  He also wanted to wish them well as they begin a new journey and offer a blessing for their futures.


I am happy to share with you a link below.  You may want to use it as part of the end of year celebration or at the end of a live streamed Mass. 


Year Eleven –


Year Thirteen:


The Archbishop would also value your feedback, so please email me with your thoughts and I will pass these on to him.


Also I have included a general video of the Archbishop speaking to the whole school family, that can be uploaded to your school website, or sent to parents, staff, governors and students.


General Message:


With best wishes and remain safe in Christ’s care.

Adviser for Chaplaincy
