Religious Life

Prior Park College is a Catholic school which warmly welcomes pupils of other Christian denominations, other religions and those of no religion. Many parents choose the College because of its strong Christian community. The Christian spirit and principles inform all aspects of the school community.

All Prior Park Schools recognise the duty to use our talents, developing ourselves to be “the person God wants you to be”.  We must celebrate the uniqueness of every child, be grateful for our gifts and generous in their use, be faith-filled and hopeful, reflective and wise, compassionate and disposed to serve others and truthful and honest in our dealings.

The pursuit of study, strong pastoral care, religious life and personal formation are integral to Prior Park Schools.

The Prior Way
Treat other people as you would like to be treated
Be honest
Show good manners
Be kind and helpful
Be your best self

Prior Park College welcomes pupils from all faith backgrounds and those with no faith into our inclusive environment and ensures that the teaching of other major religions (such as Judaism, Islam, Hinduism etc) is delivered through Theology/RE.

The College Lay Chaplain has a special responsibility for nurturing and sustaining the religious character of the College and for maintaining a clear focus on its life as a Christian community.
