As a school community, we are blessed to be supported by both Fr. Eddie Clare & Fr. Joe McLoughlin as our school priest Chaplains. They came to us from the local community and are both very eager to help our young people on their journey towards Christ. They guide us and we learn from them so that we can share our faith and friendship as a school community.
Our Priest Chaplains and our strong RE department work alongside each other to develop our Catholic Ethos. Our Chaplaincy team is made up of students & members of staff from different faculties who help to plan liturgies and collective worship throughout the year.

Our ‘Christ the Teacher’ mural in our dedicated school hall was blessed in 2011 by the Archbishop of Birmingham - Bernard Longley. It depicts Christ as our teacher, St Edmund Campion and Fr. Michael Knight who was a governor at our school for 36 years and sadly died in December 2011 a week after the mural was dedicated.
