The Catholic School of St Gregory The Great Believe and Achieve

Our Catholic Character

Catholic Character


At the Catholic School of St Gregory the Great, our Catholic faith is the cornerstone
of our school community.



We are proud to be a Catholic school; we share and celebrate our faith with joy.
We seek for all to live out the values of Jesus Christ, promoting these through both our words and actions, and welcoming all into the family of God.

Catholic doctrine and practices permeate through all aspects of school life and as a community we are grounded in the belief that through our faith and the sharing of Gospel Values all can ‘Believe and Achieve’.


Faith at the Heart of our Learning

At The Catholic School of St Gregory the Great we provide a Catholic curriculum, which is broad and balanced. We recognise that every pupil is unique and is created in the image of God (Gen 1:27)
and we seek Him in our lives.

Our curriculum is designed to enable every pupil to discern their vocation and to be well-equipped to follow it as active citizens in service to the world. Catholic Religious Education is the “core of the core curriculum” (Pope St John Paul II) and so is the foundation of the entire educational process. We also provide a range of extra-curricular activities and strong pastoral support. We incorporate democratic principles, valuing the rule of law, supporting individual liberty and fostering a community in which different faiths and beliefs are respected.

Faith Through Our Patron

St GregoryOur school is named after Saint Gregory the Great,
a man born in Rome who despite coming from a wealthy
family, chose the monastic life.
Pope Gregory was unanimously voted to be Pope
and leader of the Catholic Church in 590AD.
He valued learning, using his education to be a
servant of God and caring for those most in need.

Pope Gregory’s influence is still felt today as his changes to the Mass, including the position of the Our Father, still remain. We at The Catholic School of St Gregory the Great, try to follow his example and share his values in caring for all of our community, especially the vulnerable and helpless. We remember Saint Gregory on his feast day, 3rd September.

Our School Prayer, written by an ex-pupil of the school, is known and said by us all. It recognises God’s importance in our school, in what can be seen in our classrooms, the playgrounds and offices, but also acknowledges the ever-present sense that God is with us, guiding us and helping us live as He wants us to.
