Retreats and Pilgrimages

Throughout the year our students take part in a programme of retreats, provide our students with the chance to pause, reflect and grow closer to God. 

Every year, all students take part in an offsite retreat, with their year group. This provides the chance to pray and reflect together on the ways in which God is speaking us and to process and discuss the challenges of the school year.
