Catholic Life of the School

Year of Prayer


After the year dedicated to reflection on the documents and the study of the fruits of the Second Vatican Council in 2023, Pope Francis has asked that 2024 be marked as a Year of Prayer. The Holy Father announced its launch on Sunday 21 January 2024, on the fifth annual celebration of the ‘Sunday of the Word of God’

St Edmund Campion is not a place where pupils merely grow in knowledge, it is a place where children develop their identity and character.  

We look to scripture for revelation from God which guides us in the way he wants us to live.

In the Gospels and our Church tradition we find the person of Jesus, through his teachings and interactions with people, showing us the way to live our lives. 


Our Catholic character is underpinned by the Beatitudes (Matthew 5:1-12). 


The scripture expresses what it is that we want to nurture and develop in the children in our care:

Faithfulness & Integrity

Dignity & Compassion

Humility & Gentleness

Truth & Justice

Forgiveness & Mercy

Purity & Holiness

Tolerance & Peace

Service & Sacrifice
