Catholic Life and Mission

At St Simon Stock Catholic School, we are committed to embedding the Catholic life and mission in everything we do, from the crucifixes that hang in our classrooms, to the support and provision we give to each member of our school community.


Prayer of St Simon Stock

Heavenly Father, you called Saint Simon Stock to serve you

in the brotherhood of

Our Lady of Mount Carmel.

Through his prayers,

Help us, like him, to live in your presence,

And to work for the salvation of the human family.
We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord.



St Simon Stock, Pray for Us

Our Responsorial Prayer


Let all that we do and learn




Be done in love

Our Chaplaincy

Jane Burton is the schools Area Lead Chaplain and works across both our school and St Gregory’s Catholic School in Tunbridge Wells.
Jane is supported by the school’s Apprentice Chaplain, Cole Gillespie, who helps to run the day-to-day life of the chaplaincy and the prayer life of the school. The school is also supported by the clergy from the Parishes in the Maidstone Deanery. The Chaplaincy works with students and staff across the school, walking alongside all members of our community.


Our aim is to keep Christ at the centre of all that we do, providing opportunities for all to come together to celebrate our Catholic faith. Taking time to build strong relationships, providing space to encounter Jesus and grow in faith by exploring the love and compassion of Christ.

Our support of Charities

The school’s commitment to supporting charities stems from Christ’s call to serve others: “I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, 36 I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me…just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.” (Matthew 25:35-36,40).


As a school we support many different Charites over the academic year. Some of the main Charites we support are CAFOD and The Heart of Kent Hospice. The students are encouraged to pick charities which they want to fundraise for with our faith and service prefects taking lead of organising fundraising events. We understand the importance of fundraising and giving the students a chance to take responsibility for the impact they can make on our world.

Our provision of Religious and Sex Education and Spiritual, Moral, Cultural and Social education

As a school we recognise the DfE Guidelines on education of Relationship and Sexual Education and we also follow the guidance given to us by the Diocese. Additionally, we recognise the DfE’s guidance on SMSC provision. We embed RSE and SMSC within our provision of Personal Development and Wellbeing (PDW) which is taken by all students, as well as across the curriculum.
