Pupils attend some masses and services throughout the liturgical year in our school. Our older pupils can also attend lunchtime mass in St Stephen’s High School on a Monday.

We celebrate world religions and provide a wide range of fun learning experiences.


Pupils are encouraged to be respectful and caring towards others. Sharing and an ethos of fairness is encouraged and modelled by staff.


Our school chaplains: Fr. Matthew Carlin and Rev. William Boyle

We have good links with local churches. This enables us to make visits, and for priests and ministers to come into school. Christmas and Easter assemblies are usually supported by a member of a religious order.


Our school patron saint is St John Bosco, the patron saint of children, and we celebrate his feast day on 31st January.
