The Schools department is dedicated to providing opportunities to promote students’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development through curriculum based programmes with a special emphasis on Christian faith; we have recently received the Sandford Award for heritage education.
We offer a number of educational programmes to suit various age groups; most of these last a whole day (usually10.30am to 3.00pm). Whatever else may be provided, our programmes always include the theme of pilgrimage and a visit to the Shrine Church.
Residential visits offer far greater scope for planning an unhurried programme and we can tailor-make a package to suit the needs of your students. Please ask about additional sessions which can be included in your package.
Most of the programmes can be adapted for small groups of special needs students.
