At The Catholic School of St Gregory the Great, our Catholic life and mission is guided and supported by the Catholic parishes in Cheltenham.
There are three Catholic churches in the town, St Thomas More and St Gregory’s in Cheltenham and Sacred Heart’s in Charlton Kings. Many of our children and their families are part of the parish communities in these churches, attending Sunday Mass and liturgical events and being part of the children’s liturgy or music groups.
At school, we regularly work alongside the local clergy to enhance the Catholic life of our school and to cultivate the faith and spirituality of all our members. This includes leading parish Masses and liturgical services throughout the academic year, supporting the work of parish Catechists as they prepare children for the sacraments of First Confession and First Holy Communion, receiving altar server training and attending confession as part of school penitential services during Lent and Advent.
We are blessed to be situated close to St Gregory’s Catholic Church and all our children experience celebrating Mass together, our older children supporting our younger classes, and we enjoy connecting with the Parish Priest, Father David Mills.

Many parishioners volunteer weekly in our school, in a variety of roles, helping to keep our parish and school connected. We also work with members of the parish to support our charity efforts, including the Society of St Vincent De Paul, and to promote events during the Liturgical calendar, such as the children’s Stations of the Cross during Lent or the children’s first nativity Mass on Christmas Eve night.
