Classes prepare as a whole for the Sacraments and we include non-baptised children and children of other faiths so that they can support their peers.

The Year 3 and Year 6 staff as well as Canon Sean and Mrs Anthony will support families through this important time of formation.
If you have any questions about Sacramental preparation at OLOL please contact your child’s class teacher or make an appointment with Mrs David, the Head Teacher.
