  • Pilgrimage from FCHS to St Albans Cathedral - Year 11 fundraising event


    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.

    Sixth Form

    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.
