Chaplaincy

Our Chaplain supports students in developing their faith. Each student is encouraged to use their talent, whether it is in music, drama, dance or ICT, to help others reflect and pray. Celebratory Masses and Advent Services are held as well as special services for Christmas, Ash Wednesday and Holy Week.

There are also opportunities for students to attend national events and conferences, and to participate in faith forming activities together with students from other Ursuline schools. Each year group takes part in a retreat day, in which different themes are developed in relation to personal development and faith. Speakers are invited to share their experiences. 

Students across the school are actively involved in supporting charities. Both by raising money and by being active in the local community. Year 7 run a community Christmas tea party. Year 8 students participate in a Youth Philanthropy Project and the winning group secures £1,500 for a local charity. Year 9 participate in CAFOD group to promote Social Justice. Whilst Year 10 have the opportunity to join Youth SVP who provide support to local care homes.

Last year students raised money for charities. Local charities included; Sustainable Merton, The Passage and Catholic Children’s Society Christmas gift appeal. Internationally, we have supported; The Ursuline school in Cambodia, Cafod and The Bushfire Foundation. Students are encouraged to appreciate diversity and to build on the Gospel values of love, care, justice, peace, solidarity and respect.
