At St Benedict’s, the chapel, with Jesus present in the Blessed Sacrament is at the heart of our school. Prayer and liturgy form an integral part of school life, through collective worship and form prayers. Important events, such as Christmas and Easter and Holy Days of Obligation in the Church’s liturgical year, will be celebrated by the whole school community. There are opportunities for reconciliation in school.
Prayer is at the core of our life here in school. Pupils have the opportunity to pray in form time, assemblies and regular chapel visits. Students have the opportunity to visit places of worship in other religions and to go on residential retreats in Year 8, Year 10 and in the Sixth Form.

The Chaplaincy Team seeks to facilitate the spiritual life and journey of each student. Year 11 students have the opportunity to serve our school as Eucharistic Ministers and helping the chaplaincy team.
Our Christianity underpins everything.
