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.
Hello, I would like to introduce myself I am Miss Woods and I have been appointed the Lay Chaplain here at St Bede's and St Joseph's Catholic College following the retirement of Mr Copley.
