Stations of the Cross: Our Year 9's participation in the cross-curricular project of the Stations of the Cross is now in its twelfth year;
it involves a collaboration between religious studies, art and the music departments and has become something of a tradition at our school.

During the Spring Term and inspired by a particular artist or style, or indeed by a particular theme, students work to create a set of Stations for the school's devotional service, held on the last day of term.            


Each year a different focus is chosen; in recent years we have travelled to Westminster Cathedral and Manchester’s ‘Hidden DSC 0827Gem,’ also the Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King in Liverpool which houses the highly acclaimed Sean Rice sculptures of the Passion for inspiration. In 2017 the school was kindly offered the artwork of a professional artist, Nigel Robert Pugh, an abstract artist who is hugely influenced by colour and by religious symbolism, which was apparent in this series of his paintings.

The artwork was displayed in the School Library which was opened to the public for viewing; the students then started to work from them for a period of 2 days. Students found the exhibition very inspiring and produced some meaningful pieces for the end of term devotional service

Lenten Lunches: As part of our Lenten observance, before our Easter break all students in the seniors give up one Friday lunchtime to join with their form teacher and friends in eating a simple bread and cheese lunch. The purpose of the lunch is to eat simply and in solidarity with those less fortunate. The money usually spent on a school lunch or lunch brought from home is given up in exchange for some bread and cheese and this, in turn, will help the poor of the developing world, through the work of CAFOD.

Sacramental Life: Students will be prepared for the Sacraments of Reconciliation, Holy Communion and Confirmation in their RE lessons in the Prep Department. These Sacraments are received by the students in the Summer Term.DSC 0241
