As a Catholic College we take our responsibility to support parents in the spiritual development and faith formation of their children very seriously.
We believe that every child is entitled to opportunities for prayer, worship and reflection and all are encouraged through this to further develop their relationship with God.
Our college prayer which is said most days reminds our students of the importance of upholding the dignity of all, of recognising Christ in every person, of reaching out to those in need and respecting one another as valuable members of God’s Creation.
Our college Lay Chaplain Chris Copley and his assistant Mr Andy Doherty ensure that there is a well-planned ‘Catholic Life of the college programme’ that acknowledges the rhythms of the Liturgical year while also providing opportunities for students to live out their faith in action.
They are supported in their work by Fr. Sean Molloy and Fr. Kieron Walker
