Chester Cathedral

Each year the diocese invite Year 6 leavers to attend a service of thanksgiving.  Five hundred pupils  joined together to share the experience this July. The theme was ‘Aspirations and Hope’. We took a 3D model of the school logo to represent our school during the service. Two pupils carried our  banner as part of a procession, with other schools which was received with lots of positive comments.  One of our pupils was chosen from all the schools, to help  the Director of Education, Chris Penn and participate in part of the service. We were very proud that a pupil from Broadbottom had this wonderful opportunity.
