The Source is back!

On the 21st March the first Source event since Covid took place at St. Mary’s Cathedral, Newcastle upon Tyne. The Source event caters for both young and adult audiences. It is filled with vibrant music, inspiring life stories, moments of reflection and prayer, as well as a chance to socialise and enjoy some complimentary food. Our pupils were full of gratitude for this soul-stirring experience, embracing every moment of the beautiful evening together.

Lent Bake Sale

On Friday 1st March the SVP Group hosted our Lent Bake Sale. Lots of pupils and staff donated cakes for the sale which we were so grateful for.

During lent we practice the three pillars ‘pillars’ of Lent. Prayer, Fasting and Almsgiving.

Almsgiving is simply a response by us to God, a response that we have come to through prayer and fasting. It is an expression of our gratitude for all that God has given us, and a realization that it is never just "me and God." Works of charity and the promotion of justice are integral elements of the Christian way of life and we show this during Lent.

In total we raised £400, all money raised will go to CAFOD who support the poorest in our world. If you would like to check out the work of CAFOD please go to  

Lent Fayres

As well as our Lent Bake Sale pupils and staff from Y7 to Y10 hosted their annual Lent Fayres.

Pupils created their own amazing stalls and together raised an incredible £622 for CAFOD. So much fun was had by everyone.

We would like to say a big thank you to everyone who participated, donated, and supported this amazing cause.

Your generosity and enthusiasm have made a real difference in our community and beyond. Let's continue to spread kindness and compassion whenever we can.

SVP/ Faith in Action

A group of pupils from our SVP group visited Carmel College to take part in a diocesan event which focused on Pope Francis' encyclical Laudato Si. In Laudato Si, Pope Francis calls us all to be stewards of God's creation. Thank you to Carmel for the invitation to this event.

CAFOD Teach Someone to Read

Pupils show compassion and willingness through school rewards scheme.

We have thanked over 78 of our pupils this academic year for their kind donation of 4750 ClassChart reward point to CAFOD and for living out our school values in such an amazing and generous manner.  Pupils are given ClassCharts praise points during lessons and for extra-curricular activities.  This group of amazing young people have been willing to donate a large number of their personal points to support those less fortunate, which is a truly inspirational act of kindness.

This is a fabulous, life-changing donation by our pupils which has helped school to fund six CAFODTeach Someone to Read" literacy classes for vulnerable people.  Reading opens up so many doors: education, work, pleasure, self-improvement and more.  This will make a huge difference and help to shape and change so many lives!
