We are proud of our Catholic heritage and ethos.
It gives us a spiritual depth which benefits each
one of our girls. We provide a safe and supportive
environment that embraces and respects people of
all faiths or none. Our reputation for excellent
pastoral care finds its roots here. Within this
framework our girls have the space to explore and
develop their ethical, moral and spiritual values.They
come to understand the benefits of tolerance and
respect, the significance of human dignity and the
duty of care which all leaders should have.They
know what they stand for and appreciate the importance
of their uniqueness.
Spiritual Life of the School
Although the School is a Catholic foundation,
we welcome and respect all faiths or the absence
of one. However in worship, in our relationships
and in teaching the School is committed to
the expression of the Catholic faith, both
explicitly and, perhaps more importantly,
in our life together. The girls are expected
to be tolerant, thoughtful good stewards of
the life they have been given and the world
in which they live, and to act with integrity,
honesty and out of a sense of justice.
The School is fortunate to have its own Chapel,
where regular weekly services are held for
girls and Staff. Catholic girls celebrate
Days of Obligation when they fall within the
school day, and the School also celebrates
St Thomas More's Day for obvious reasons.
The School offers the opportunity to go on
retreat with the Religious Studies Department.
The School also expresses its spirituality
in very practical ways. All girls help to
fund-raise for charity and the School also
has a number of links with various projects
around the world. The girls normally select
two charities to support during the year,
as well as taking part in national events
such as Red Nose Day, Genes for Jeans Day
and Save the Children.
