Our Journey in Faith
The Catholic life of The Willows is rich in opportunities for children to encounter God and to deepen their relationship with Him as a loving, compassionate Father. On this page we aim to share with you and celebrate many of the elements which make our Catholic school so special.

At The Willows we have such strong links with our Parish community. We are so lucky to have the church next to our school grounds.
