As a Catholic school, we nurture faith. We cultivate this in our Masses, Reconciliation Services, Remembrance Service and Retreats.
Our Catholic ethos underpins our values, curriculum and actions. We believe in the unique dignity of each individual person and so a culture of respect permeates our environment. We provide a learning experience which nurtures moral development, strength of character and positive relationships. Our young people are enriched by the opportunities to gather in worship, think of others and work in service. We encourage self reflection and development of the whole person. We recognise the immense capability of our youth, who enrich our school and local environment by their engagement and contributions.
Our Post 16 Pope John Paul Award students and our Key Stage 3 Faith Group enhance the liturgical events in the school calendar and they are instrumental in role modelling the life of a young person in the 21st Century with a commitment to Christian values and lifestyle. Our students participate in a range of fundraising activities and have shown commitment to social justice issues and awareness campaigns.
The Retreats offered to students in Key Stage 4 & Post 16 provide an opportunity to step back from life, to consider relationships and lifestyle and re-engage in a lived faith. We are concerned with the holistic development of our young people and we are committed to ensuring they receive an education which supports their development as a child of God.
