Our Church Links
We have very strong links with our church; Mexborough Parish Church and our parish priest, Father Edward. Throughout the year each class visits the church to support their learning and strengthen their understanding of Christianity. For instance, when learning about the Holy Trinity, our Year 3 children visit the church to talk part in a baptism roleplay and find out more about the meaning of the 'Father, Son and Holy Spirit'. At the end of each term the whole school (Y1 to Y6) visits the church to to take part in a special service. Father Edward is also a frequent visitor to school. As well as supporting us with embedding our Christian values, he also often leads collective worship, mass, Confirmation classes and spiritual guidance.
Mexborough Parish Church is very ancient in origin. Documents show that a church was on this site shortly after the Norman Conquest in 1066. In 1350-1400 the church consisted of a tower and spire, a nave and a square-headed chancel. When the refurbishment in 1890 started, it was evident that the church had gone through three stages of restoration.During the restoration of 1890, the plaster and whitewash were removed on the north aisle to reveal the Creed, Lord’s Prayer and the Ten Commandments. They are well worth a visit. The church has a lot of treasures to explore including some ancient stones in the porch. There is some beautiful stained glass and some stalls made by Robert ‘Mousey’ Thompson. The font is octagonal stone font and was made in the early 14th century. There are various memorials around church.
