Some of these events include: Mad for Maths/Excited for English/Computing/Science competitions throughout the year; a Year 5 enrichment programme focusing on a wealth of different subjects throughout the year where our children visit and are visited by Mount Carmel; STEM workshops and award; musical events such as the 'Accrington Market Place Carol Singing' event and the 'Mount Carmel Carol Concert'.
