“Chaplaincy at Saint Gregory’s aims to strengthen and nourish our young people on this vital stage of their journey. We believe discernment and Gospel values are integral elements for discovering our true vocation. Chaplaincy aims to supply this scaffold of spiritual and pastoral support so that all our students fulfil their calling.”
Mr Robinson, Chaplain
Chaplaincy at Saint Gregory’s
Chaplaincy at Saint Gregory’s offers students a programme of activities and retreats to engage in a spiritual journey in a way that speaks to young people. We welcome Chaplains from a range of Christian backgrounds to work together to provide a caring, welcoming, inclusive and stimulating environment for all.
Our school chaplaincy groups meet regularly in the Chapel and are supported by our school Chaplain. The work of the chaplaincy groups represents our Christian values in action. The chaplaincy organises a wide range of activities from a spiritual perspective including meditation, morning prayer and other devotions. Students work together throughout the academic calendar to raise awareness and funds for charities such as CAFOD, Julian House and Macmillan Cancer Support.
The Blessed Sacrament is present through the week in the school chapel. It is a place of great peace and calm and provides a sanctuary for young people to reflect, meet and pray.
Chaplaincy at The New Sixth
The central focus of chaplaincy at sixth form is for all students to achieve to their academic best and to facilitate time for students to develop personally into mature, confident individuals ready to embrace the opportunities and challenges that the world has to offer.
Strong pastoral care is essential to academic success and to ensure that the A Level journey is one characterised by positivity and a growth mindset. The multifaceted pastoral system guarantees that there is always someone to guide and support students from the tutor to the Director of Sixth Form. The New Sixth creates an environment that is not only professional but personal, establishing strong relationships between students and staff so that no student need ever face a challenge alone.
The weekly, tutor-led pastoral programme is carefully designed to support students with the myriad of challenges and issues that they may face. It is also dynamic in its planning and flexible to attend to the needs of students in an immediate and purposeful way. Covering topics from study skills to wellbeing and financial planning, it supports students to develop the skills necessary to survive and thrive in modern society.
Chaplaincy at The New Sixth offers students an optional programme of activities and retreats to engage in a spiritual journey in a way that speaks to young people. We welcome Chaplains from a range of Christian backgrounds to work together to provide a caring, welcoming, inclusive and stimulating environment for all.
