Welcome to the ‘Catholic Life’ section of our school website!

In the pages contained in this section, you will find information relating to the Catholic life of Bishop Ellis Catholic Voluntary Academy. Some of the information may also be found elsewhere on the website and this is intentional; the Catholic life of our school is inherent in all that we do at Bishop Ellis, both in school and in the wider school and parish community.

There is a lot of information contained within these pages. Perhaps most important of all is our school mission statement, (‘I have come in order that you might have life – life in all its fullness.’ John 10:10, along with a simplified version for our younger children), which underpins all that we do in school. This, along with our school values (love God, aspire to be our best, be honest, forgive, care), forms the basis of what we teach the children and is a true reflection of what we desire for each individual in our community – to truly know the joy of a full and happy life.

Through this section of our school website, we hope to share with you and celebrate some of the many elements that make our Catholic school so special. The termly R.E. newsletter gives details of the work that will be covered in R.E. lessons each term, suggested activities to complete at home and important dates in the Church’s year.

We hope that you are able to find all the information that you need in these pages. If, however, you do have any questions, please use the contact form below and you will receive a response as soon as it is possible.

Thank you for your support.
