We are very proud of our retreat programme and aim to give every pupil at least one chance to experience a retreat whilst they are part of our school.
A retreat is exactly what it sounds like - the chance to step aside from life for a while, to rest and just 'be' in a welcoming, peaceful place. They take place at special retreat centres throughout the country and usually last between two and four days.
Retreats are open to all pupils, regardless of faith and age. They allow our children to experience time out from the every day noise of life, providing time for reflection on spiritual matters and to learn more about themselves and others.
Here are just a few quotes from our pupils.
“I feel it brought me and my new friends closer.”
“I enjoyed the varied discussions”
“I think I learnt a lot about myself”
“I loved the activities, they were really great fun!”
