Thank you for registering your interest in our school Moving Up Days.
Booking is now closed and we are reviewing all submissions in order to allocate school spaces as soon as possible and will be in touch as soon as that information is available.
We are delighted to announce that we will be having six Moving Up celebrations in 2024. These events are to mark this important change for the children in Year 4 and Year 6 within the diocese who will be leaving their First or Primary school to move on to secondary or middle schools.
Moving Up celebrations will be held in each of the three archdeaconries within the diocese. You will receive an invitation in January indicating which venue/archdeaconry event is available to your school. There are a few North Somerset schools that will be offered Wells as they are geographically closer to that venue.
- Taunton archdeaconry - Fully subscribed
- Bath Abbey - Fully subscribed
- Wells Archdeaconry - Fully subscribed
All services will start at either 10.30 or 13.00 and will last approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes. Following feedback from last year all events in Bath Abbey and Wells Cathedral will take place in the Nave of the venue so there will be no restricted view.
Moving on to secondary or middle school is an important step for every Yr6 and Yr4 pupil. These worship events have been put together by the diocesan Go Team and clergy to make sure that we send our Yr6 and Yr4 children onto the next stage of their educational journey, with no doubt that God is with them and will remain with them. Each event will include the opportunity for schools to process with their school banners and to leave with a special candle to take back to their schools.

2023 events for Year 4 and Year 6 children
We ran five special Services of Pilgrimage for children in Year 4 and Year 6 who were leaving their first or primary school to move on to middle or secondary schools. The Services of Pilgrimage were held in each of the three archdeaconries within the diocese.
Moving on to middle or secondary school is an important step for every Year 4 and Year 6 pupil.

Each Service enabled schools to process with their school banners and to leave with a special candle of pilgrimage to take back to their schools.
