We communicate Our Mission and support students and staff through our shared Catholic ethos.

Check out the new DEA 2021-22 Year Planner with all the key liturgical dates, Awareness Days and CAFOD events.  

We produce a 'Pebble' powerpoint each week based on the Sunday's Gospel, Feast Days and Awareness Days.  Each Pebble contains inspiring reflections, images, wellbeing activities and prayers that can be easily adapted for assemblies, liturgies and prayer time. 

You can access a 'read only' ppt version of Pebble.  You can download a copy onto your computer and then edit it as required.  For advice on how to do this, click on How to view and/or download a read only file.

Working in a Catholic School 

Our Common Prayers

Prayer is central to our school life.  We have created a set of common prayers that can be displayed or projected to help groups to pray together.

Our Common Prayers


We have created a presentation that helps to explain our Catholic ethos and how this inspires us as we journey through life together.  To view the presentation click on Our Catholic Ethos.

Catholic Social Teaching

We believe that our Catholic values are best shown through our love for each other and by working for justice and an end to poverty.

We work closely with the Catholic Agency for Overseas Development (CAFOD).

CAFOD's vision and mission draws directly from Catholic Social Teaching (CST).

Over the last five years CAFOD have been particularly inspired by Pope Francis' encyclical letter Laudato Si'.  Pope Francis calls us all to respond to both the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor in Our Common Home.
