Faith

FaithChrist the King Catholic Voluntary Academy is a CATHOLIC SCHOOL, and we aim to have a living, dynamic and stimulating faith. Our first and most important aim is to share the Gospel message of Jesus, that is everyone of us is loved and cared for by God. Our academy mission statement can be found here. We want our students to be happy and to feel valued.

It is a major responsibility of our school to help our Catholic students to develop their understanding of the Catholic Faith whilst respecting other faiths in and out of school. We are closely linked with our partner parishes. The local Priests regularly visit the school and get involved in a variety of ways, e.g. being a member of the Governing Body, celebrating Holy Mass and getting involved with the pastoral care of our students.

Each day begins and ends with prayer and one of our houses will have an Act of Worship together. Holy Mass is celebrated very regularly  with other sacramental and non-sacramental liturgies taking place throughout the year. For smaller groups these are celebrated in our Chapel where the Blessed Sacrament is reserved and for larger groups this is in the main hall. At Christmas, Easter and on holidays of obligation we walk as a whole school community to the Good Shepherd Church to worship together.

It is our hope that during their time as part of our community both students and staff are able to grow in faith and understanding.
