The role of the Chaplain is inherent in the vision and Mission Statement of the school: to support and develop the spiritual life and Gospel values of the school community.  Within the Chaplaincy framework the school provides the opportunity for personal counselling during the lunch-break or at any other time according to need. Consultations with the School Counsellor are generally confidential.

The Chapel is a beautiful, purpose-built building which can accommodate the entire school for Mass, Services, Assemblies and other events such as Prize Giving. The Chapel is always open during school hours and students are welcome to visit it at any time.  The architect was Sir Adrian Gilbert Scott and the Chapel was completed and opened in 1932 when it was dedicated to the Sacred Heart.

The Prayer Room is a place for quiet reflection.

The Chaplaincy Office is a comfortable room where students can go to talk to the School Chaplain.
