Collective Worship

The spacious and comfortable Chaplaincy rooms are a hub for social activity, with beautiful adjoining Chapels for prayer and worship. The Chaplaincy room is open to all – students just drop-in to relax, meet with friends or participate in an organised activity. The Chapel is a place for quiet space to reflect and pray. Mass is celebrated in the Chapel weekly and on Holy Days throughout the year.

Students don’t have to be religious to get involved. The Chapels afford an opportunity for students of any faith or none to find some peace and space for reflection.

The daily pattern of prayer at each site is an important part of Sixth Form morning routine and ensures as part of the 10:10 Programme that all staff and students take part in daily prayer and reflection, embedding the rhythms of the prayer life of the Church. In many classes’ students lead this worship ship particularly well. Scripture continues to be at the heart of collective acts of worship and across daily prayers, weekly masses, thoughts for the week and whole college liturgies. The breadth and richness of the Catholic tradition was evident throughout whilst taking account of the capacity of students and staff who are different stages in their faith journey 

The Chaplaincy team continue to have a high profile speaking at weekly briefings, Hall meetings and staff meetings, supporting induction, community days, open evenings, parents’ evenings, ethos, and community days. The team also continue to play an active role in school and community partnerships.
