Events we Organise

Fireworks Display and Bonfire - This popular event is set within our beautiful, leafy grounds

Christmas Fayre Last year this event was held within the sports hall with an ice rink inside and Christmas Trees for sale outside. The school choir sang, there where external Christmas traders, teachers were doing the face painting and there was a Santa’s grotto.

Mothers Day - The PTFA Committee with parent volunteers and teachers prepare the craft materials for the children to make a card and gift for their Mothers.

Summer Fayre - last year our theme was St Ursulas Goes Wild!  Rain was forecast, but luckily the sun came out as the gates opened.  This summer we had a visit from Bristol Zoo and a mechanical rodeo cow!  We had plenty of outside games, a bouncy castle, a fantastic barbecue and Pimms tent, musical support from the school choir and a solo guitarist who sang some great summary tunes.

Ice Cream Fridays:  This year we had a wonderfully long summer and ice cream Fridays were a great success. The children enjoyed this special treat after a week at school and an opportunity to play with their friends whilst the parents and carers chatted.

School Discos - These discos were ever so popular with the children!

The School Shop: The School Uniform shop aim is to provide good quality school uniform items at affordable prices. The school shops opens at least once a week and sells new and second hand school uniform.  The shop is a real asset to the school as it gives busy parents the opportunity to buy school uniform on the school.
