Spiritual Life

As a Catholic School, prayer and worship are central to our daily routines. Each morning registration begins with a prayer, led by the tutor or members of the group.

The whole School gathers together in two assemblies every Wednesday morning for scripture readings, hymns, prayers, reflections. Students are fully involved in the preparation and presentation of worship and sometimes pupils lead the worship themselves.

In addition to daily collective worship, there is weekly voluntary Mass in the chapel, Masses at the beginning and end of year and for holy days of obligation. The Religious Education department also organises reconciliation services during Advent and Lent and special liturgies throughout the year. Preparation for the sacraments is done through local parishes but the School is fully supportive and encourages pupils to take these significant steps in their spiritual development.
