FCHS are now working with the education charity Future First to find and reconnect with former students that have left over the years.
The aim of the FCHS Alumni network is to offer former students, teachers, parents and supporters of Finchley Catholic High School opportunities to maintain an active link with our school. By joining our alumni you could support the learning of FCHS students by sharing your learning journey and successes.
The pilgrimage will take place on Thursday 13th May 2021 to commemorate the first anniversary of Francis Dayrits' passing. We have chosen to walk to St Albans Cathedral as St Alban is our school's patron saint.
82 students and 7 members of the year 11 pastoral team will be walking from school to St Albans Cathedral. Some of you may remember the 2016 pilgrimage to celebrate our schools 90th anniversary. We will be taking the same route as this. The journey is approximately 23km in distance.
Just prior to the first lockdown we started the construction of our school ‘Peace Garden’, an outdoor Oratory for reflection and prayer surrounded by the beauty of God’s creation. This space will be used for a combination of things within our community, including RE lessons, Chaplaincy activities and a space for solitude and reflection.
The ‘best of both worlds’ sums up what we offer: a dedicated Sixth Form Centre, but the benefits of the facilities of a whole school; a cohesive Sixth Form community, but a wider community with opportunities for leadership; the independence and privileges associated with being a Sixth Former, but the support and structures of an excellent pastoral system and individual academic provision.
