Last term saw the launch of our Mission Champions. Each tutor group has chosen a Mission Champion. All Houses are leading a project in order to follow Catholic Social Teaching and the importance of caring for others. This may be focused on a charity or raising awareness about something that is important for the care of others and themselves.

Each House has their own project that was suggested in form time and agreed on in the Mission Champion House group. Their chosen projects are:

Canterbury– Autism Awareness Day and Tourette’s Awareness Day

Holywell – Equality for all, focus on equality for women

Lindisfarne – Cancer research and care for the environment

Iona – Raise awareness and funds for Ukraine​, Raise awareness of Mental Health

Walsingham – Black Lives Matter​, Raise money for Turkey/Syria disaster

Lenten Pledges

Our focus this term is obviously on our Lenten pledges. We will spend time in prayer on Ash Wednesday asking our students to focus their thoughts on how we can take part in the three challenges of Lent to pray, fast and give to others.


Students will be given the opportunity during form Acts of Worship to reflect on the stations of the cross. These are prayerful reflections on Jesus’ journey to the cross. Staff and students in school have recorded these prayers and they will be made available on the website for any parents who would like to join us in these prayerful moments. You can take a look at our School prayers by clicking here.


Students are being encouraged to give something up during Lent to share in Jesus’ experience in the desert at the start of his ministry. We are encouraging them to think about how fasting doesn’t have to mean going without, it can also be a commitment to do more for those around them.

Give to others

There will be several fundraising events taking place this half term, including a non-uniform day, cake sales and much more. We encourage students to do what they can to support these events.

Prayer Theme for the Week

The prayer theme for this week is 'Faith.' This weeks Acts of Worship will be lead by Houses.
