Spiritual Life

FAITH AND LEADERSHIP PROGRAMME

We call upon our sixth formers to take up the challenge of Catholic leadership- contributing fully to our community and the wider community. Through a culture of service we hope to enrich and strengthen our pupils’ abilities to contribute in their future lives.

Leadership

We expect all Sixth Formers to serve as role models and to contribute to the smooth running of the School by carrying out important duties. We have a team of Senior Prefects who represent the School at key events and coordinate the actions of other prefects. Sixth Formers are called upon to work with younger pupils as form prefects, helping younger pupils to organise themselves and leading prayers in morning form period.

Community Service

We expect all members of the Lower Sixth Form to participate in a project supporting other people. Outside school there are three main areas where pupils participate: a local primary school supporting the school reading programme; visiting senior citizens at a local residential care home; working with the homeless one Saturday morning a month at a homeless shelter. In addition, there are opportunities to support our younger pupils with their studies. We find that involving our senior pupils in these ways provides excellent opportunities for making a difference to the lives of others and for personal growth for our own pupils.

Journey in Faith

At the heart of everything we do is our shared Catholic Faith. For sixth formers, we continue to provide whole school services and morning House assemblies. Each morning starts with a prayer and a reflective passage. We have a chaplain who coordinates a programme of class Masses, retreats and pilgrimages.
