STUDENTS from Archbishop Grimshaw Catholic School had a once in a lifetime chance to see the Pope in London.

Two teachers and ten students were invited to the “Big Assembly”, which took place in Twickenham last Friday.

Only a handful of secondary schools were invited to the event, in which the Pontiff addressed young people from around the country.

To be there on time, they had to leave the Chelmsley Wood school at 3am. But despite the early start, students said they were thrilled.
