House Charities


Each House, led by the Year 6 House Captains, have selected a charity close to their hearts and will organise a charity event to raise money for these worthy causes.

Laudato Si’

The Diocese of Brentwood Launched Laudato Si’ Invitations, Commitments and Actions in response to the plea from Pope Francis to, ‘”Listen to the cry of the earth, the cry of the poor.”

Our school community is committed to playing our part in caring for for our common home.

In school, we have been learning about the words of Pope Francis in his encyclical letter, Laudato Si’ and have made pledges about how we can help protect our Earth for ourselves and for future generations.

St. Mother Teresa of Calcutta said:

“Is what I am doing to serve the poor just a drop in the ocean?

Yes. But many drops make a different ocean”


Here are some websites if you would like to find out more about Laudato Si’ and the Diocese of Brentwood’s response to this:

CAFOD Fundraisers


We were visited by Mr. Jones, a friend of St. Joseph’s and a CAFOD volunteer. He told the school community about how CAFOD use our donations to help  and support poorer families across the world.

Mr. Jones also spoke to the children about CAFOD’s Lent initiative: The Big Lent Walk which we will be fundraising for this half term (more details to follow!)
