Links with Buckfast Abbey and Local Churches
Some of our school services are held within Buckfast Abbey Church, which is within walking distance of the school.
The school welcomes members of the Parish to attend school events, such as the Carol Service or our Harvest Celebrations.
We have also developed links with our local Parish Churches of Buckfastleigh, Ashburton and South Brent. For example, the children decorate cribs at Christmas in each of the Parish Churches and lead their Crib Blessings, to which the Parish and school community are invited.
Father Abbot visited St Mary’s to meet staff and children and see what has been happening at the school.
