Welcome to The Catholic School of St Gregory the Great Chaplaincy Page.


1 Peter 2:21 “For to this you have been called, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, so that you might follow in his steps.”



A Brief History


Our School Chapel was officially opened and blessed by Bishop Declan in May 2014 and to support the daily running of the Chapel, a St Gregory’s School Chaplaincy Team was established. Now, as well as helping children to enjoy this special place in our school, the role of the Chaplaincy Team has evolved over the past 4 years so that each member aims to become a spiritual role model, offering others guidance and support and assisting in the prayer life of the school in a wide variety of ways. This team has even started to train other children and staff in aspects of chaplaincy and they regularly meet with other Chaplaincy Teams in neighbouring schools to share and build upon their wonderful work.



Our Chapel




Our most recent RE Inspection in 2016, praised the work of the Chaplaincy Team:


“The prayer life of the school is inclusive and joyful. Prayer punctuates the school day and is part

of every celebration. There is a strong focus on encouraging more pupils to organise and lead
collective worship, following the excellent example of the chaplaincy team. The school chapel is
at the heart of the school and used well.”


“The pupils’ ownership of prayer and worship is now led by an enthusiastic chaplaincy team which is

having a growing impact on the involvement of all pupils;”


“The school council and the chaplaincy team represent the pupils’ voice to communicate ideas

and feelings expressed by every class across the school. They feel their voice is heard and their
opinions matter.  For  example,  they  play  a  key  role  in  choosing,  planning,  and  supporting
fundraising initiatives such as St. Vincent de Paul and CAFOD.”
