It is with great sadness that we share with you the news of the death of HRH Prince Philip the Duke of Edinburgh on Friday 9th April 2021.
As a Church school we offer our most sincere condolences to our Supreme Governor - the Queen and other members of the Royal Family.
As we give thanks to God for the life of a HRH Prince Philip and the years of selfless service to our country, we take inspiration and comfort from St Paul’s first letter to Timothy as we support our Christian community in traveling forward.
‘I urge, then first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people - for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. ‘ Timothy 2:2-1
In school we will be celebrating his life and achievements, through a Book of Condolence. Please email in your comments and we will add these to our school book. This in turn will be sent to the Royal Website and held in local archives for future generations to understand the historical significance of the Duke and impact of this national period of mourning. Alternatively you can add your comments to the official online Book of Condolence using the link: Send a message of condolence | The Royal Family
or through the Church of England website by using this link: Welcome to the Church of England's official website | The Church of England.
Please join us in praying for the Queen and the Royal Family during this difficult period of mourning.
Loving God, We are sad that Prince Philip has died. Thank you for his long life and for his care for The Queen and our country. Amen.
"The Queen has been pleased to declare her will and pleasure that His 'Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh shall henceforth be known as His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh," the palace said in a statement on Feb. 22, 1957
