Lindisfarne House is named after the island of Lindisfarne, just off the north-east coast of England. It is also known as Holy Island.
In 635AD, St. Aidan came from Iona to found a monastery on Lindisfarne. The Christian message flourished here and spread throughout the world. The island is a centre of pilgrimage, but is also known for it’s tranquility, spirituality and scenic beauty, which attracts a multitude of visitors every year.
It is fitting that the house which contains our Religious Education department is named after a site of religious significance where the Christian message was promoted and where there was a source for spreading the word of God. Christianity features as a large part of everyday life at Christ the King Catholic Voluntary Academy, you can find more information in the Catholic Ethos section of the site.
