St Felix

Pupils learned about St Felix, and shared with pupils about aspects of his life:

St. Felix (meaning happy or joyful) is a premier saint quoted in the annals of English Church history.


Felix came to East Anglia from Burgundy in the company of Sigbert the Learned, an East Anglian King. Felix is renowned as a great missionary and became the first Bishop of East Angles. He is said to have founded a monastery at Soham about A.D. 630.


Leading Lights shared that he was a creative man, and loved to share the Gospel of Jesus through stories and pictures, and it is rather fitting that our creative learning space (the CCSS Classroom and Lunchtime Calm Zone) is named after him.
