Our Catholic Life


We want our family here at St Paul’s to be full of JOY.

As our patron St Paul encourages us to :

“Be joyful in hope,

patient in difficulties

and faithful in prayer

 (Romans 2:12)


Our DESIRE is that everyone will have a positive experience during their time at St Paul’s

 by adhering to these tenets:

Jesus – Follow his example

Others – put others before yourself

Yourself – be your best self.

This is the cornerstone of our Catholic Life and Mission, a school with Christ at our centre, supported by our Class and House Saints.




In preparation for the 2025 Jubilee Year 'Pilgrims of Hope', 2024 has been designated a Year of Prayer by Pope Francis. It starts this Advent. There is a particular focus on the Our Father, and this presents us with a great opportunity to go back to the basics of prayer on earth as it is in Heaven.






March is the month of St. Joseph.

They are taught as a discrete topic in the Autumn term and referred to in may other lessons.
