The Chaplaincy Team

Welcome to our Chaplaincy page!

Our team of Chaplains are here to support you, as well as taking a lead role in organising a whole range of groups and activities for you to get involved with. We organise Masses, liturgies and trips such as the Castlerigg Retreat for our Year 11 and take the lead on Fairtrade in school. We also host weekly clubs, including Colour and Chat and Chaplaincy Leaders for all year groups, as well as the CAFOD Young Leadership programme for Y12.

We are also here for you to talk to if you need us. Mrs Robson is a qualified counsellor, and Mr Gibson and Miss Smith mentor students too. If you have a problem or are feeling worried or anxious about anything, we are here to listen. You can find our office next to the main door to the Chapel. Come and find us to say “Hello!” or find out more about how you can get involved with Chaplaincy.
