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 those in Y10 & Y11 and take the lead on Fairtrade in school. We also host weekly clubs, including CAFOD for Y7-10, SVP for Y11- 13, SMCA singers, Sixth form Group and Colour and Chat.  We are also here for you to talk to if you need us. Mrs Robson is a qualified counsellor, and Mr Gibson, Miss Smith and Miss Crutch mentor students too.

You can find our office next to the main door to the Chapel. Come and find us and say "Hello!"

The Gaplains' CAFOD overseas experience

In conjunction with CAFOD our gap year chaplains get to experience the charitable work being undertaken in countries across the globe.  Each year the gappers visit one of the countries CAFOD works in, to see first hand what goes on.

Upon their return to the UK, the gappers share their stories and experiences with us here in school and with parishes across the diocese.
