ISA Regional 5-A-Side Football Tournament


On Tuesday, the boys from Lower Two and Upper Two travelled to The Len Forge Centre in Southend with Mr. Taylor and Mr. Wilson to take part in the ISA 5-a-side Regional Football Tournament. We were delighted that the boys were able to play at all, as the original venue, Alleyn Court, were unable to host the event due to waterlogged pitches. 14 teams from various schools in the area took part and the competition was formidable at times. We came top of Group A in the knockout rounds and played against the runners-up of Group B in the semi-final [...]

U11 District Netball Tournament 2024


Fifteen schools accepted the invitation to take part in the annual tournament. With some of them intending on bringing two teams making 18 teams competing in total. However, one school withdrew their entry at the last moment which meant we had to play another team in order to make up the group knock out numbers. Notwithstanding the changeable weather, all teams participated with enthusiasm. Ursuline A, B and C teams played with determination and despite some of our girls playing against older girls they held their own. Ursuline A and B teams played in the semi-finals against Woodlands, Hutton Manor [...]

Ash Wednesday Service


Children from Pre-Reception upwards and staff gathered to mark the beginning of Lent in our Ash Wednesday service, which was led by Fr John. The service reflected on repentance, thinking of others, and preparing ourselves for the joy of Easter. Upper Two assisted in leading the liturgy and read beautifully and the younger children responded enthusiastically to Fr John’s homily. The school community received ashes on their foreheads with the words, ‘Repent and believe in the Good News’.

Viking Day – Lower Two


Lower Two had a Viking themed day with Portals to the Past last Tuesday. The children and staff all dressed up in Viking outfits. During the day the children learnt about how the Vikings came to Britain and how over time they moved from being raiders to invaders and then settlers. They also studied their beliefs, the roles of men, women, and children in their cultures, and also about them as travellers and traders as well as warriors! The children played a traditional Viking board game called ‘Geese and Fox’ and looked at and discussed artifacts and there uses. All [...]

On Monday, the school hosted the inaugural District Dance Competition. Several local schools took part in the competition that was judged in two age categories.
