PUPILS and staff at Blessed Edward Jones Catholic High School marked an end of an era.

In September, pupils will return to £23million Catholic School Christ the Word.

The school, which will cater for 420 full time pupils aged 3-11 and 500 pupils aged 11-16, will replace Ysgol Mair and BEJCHS.

Amanda Preston has been appointed headteacher of Christ the Word.

On Wednesday, July 16, BEJCHS posted on Twitter: "End of an era. Blessed Edward Jones closes its doors for the final time.

"Here we come Christ The Word. The journey has been amazing."

The new school has been funded in partnership by Denbighshire County Council and the Welsh Government through its 21st Century Schools Programme.

The name Christ the Word was given by The Right Rev Peter M Brignall.⁩
