We had Mass in school yesterday (07/01/2018) to celebrate a New Year, to have time to gather, pray, worship and to be with Jesus.
We also said happy birthday and a fond farewell to Father Martin Sylvester who has been the parish priest at St Francis of Assisi in Long Eaton for 10 years.
Welcome to Mr Gritton who has taken up the post of Executive Headteacher. We welcome him to our school community and wish him every success in his new role.
Greeting from Mr Gritton:
“I would like to extend my thanks to all staff, students, parents and governors for the very warm welcome I have received at Saint John Houghton. Over the years I have heard so many positive things said about the school and I have been so struck by the strong sense of community that the school has and the great sense of Catholic Mission. I look forward very much to working with Mrs McCarthy and her team over the next 12 months and to our two schools learning from one another and doing all we can to provide the best education possible for our children.
God Bless and I look forward to meeting you all.”
