Collective Worship

The school’s dedication to collective worship stems from the Catechism of the Catholic Church, Article 1324: The Eucharist is “the source and summit of the Christian life.” We offer collective worship to staff and students as part of our vocation and call to serve God and each other.


Our provision of Collective Worship includes, but is not limited to:


Prayer is a central part of our daily routine. Every lesson student participate in the Lasallian Call to Prayer at the start of the lesson: “Let us remember that we are in the Holy Presence of God”, R: “Let us Adore Him”, and a collect at the end of the lesson: “Live Christ in our Hearts”, R: “Forever”. In addition to this, at the end of the school day, we have a whole school prayer read across the tannoy for all students and staff to observe.



Students and staff are invited to Mass every Friday during our Form Masses. We hold welcome Mass at the start of the year, Easter Mass and end of the year Masses, as well as discrete leavers’ Masses and Masses for Holy Days of Obligation which fall in the school calendar.



As part of the amazing work done by our chaplain, students are invited to participate in reflections, reconciliation services and, with the support of Deacon Ian Black, adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.
