The College is part of the Catholic Church’s international family of schools. Religious education in the school is in accordance with the teachings of the Catholic Church; and religious worship is in accordance with its rites and practices. At all times the College serves as a witness to the Catholic faith in Our Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe that St Richard Reynolds Catholic College is special because of our sense of community, and the relationships between teachers and students. Being part of this team engenders respect and a love of teaching and learning, celebrating each individual for their talents and helping one another to become the person God has created us to be.
We achieve this by ensuring students engage with their faith daily, through a combination of class worship, assemblies and whole College masses, as well as liturgies, adoration and reconciliation at key liturgical times of the year. Mass is celebrated every Friday morning in the College, with students having the opportunity to deepen their faith and reflect on their lives both inside and outside school.
Another key part of College life is putting students’ and teachers’ faith into action through Service and the Common Good; whether this is through our House Point System and fundraising, student leadership with our Chaplaincy team or links with our Parish communities.
Our Mission Statement
St Richard Reynolds is a Catholic community rooted in the love of Christ in which we seek to help each other to become the person whom God has created us to be; and where children come first and all are loved, listened to, challenged and inspired.
