Our School Faith

Our School Faith


Whilst we celebrate and nurture our Catholic identity we are proud and eager to share this gift with children and families of other faiths within our close community here in Whitworth.


We want our children, staff and parents to meet Jesus Christ each day through their relationships with one another. Jesus who is our role model has taught us to share our many gifts with others, forgive those who have wronged us in any way and strive to be the best that we can be. As a school community we can journey together so that we can ultimately share in Almighty God’s heavenly kingdom.


This year we have written a new class prayer . It helps us to think about our school mission.




Year of Prayer 2016-2017

As a group of Catholic schools in the Rossendale valley we have decided to dedicate the academic year 2016-2017 to prayer our school GIFT Teams are meeting up throughout the year to share prayer ideas before leading collective worship back in school. 


Year of Mercy 2015-2016

At the start of the Year of Mercy we discussed ways in which God shows us his mercy. Each month a different class prepared an assembly for the whole school and made a banner for their door. Here are our beautiful banners!




We pray together:

All Loving Father,

you sent Jesus your Son

to show us Your mercy

and to teach us how to forgive one another.


Pour out Your Holy Spirit upon us.

Help us to remember that we are all sinners

this Year of Mercy has been a pilgrimage,

a journey back to You.


Make us ambassadors of mercy,

sharing Your forgiveness with everyone,

especially those who feel

that they are beyond Your love.

We make this prayer through Christ our Lord.
