Welcome from Headteacher, Mike Wilson
St Gregory’s is a proudly Catholic school, welcoming individuals of all faiths and none.
Established in 1966 and now part of the Kent Catholic Schools' Partnership, we foster a strong Catholic ethos. Our mission is to ensure we provide every student in our care with a world-class Catholic education, welcoming them into our inclusive and caring community in which every child is known and loved.
We teach students to understand their own unique value and dignity, so they may recognise and realise their God-given potential and, inspired by the life of St Gregory, we empower them to approach with vigour the opportunities of their education. We aim for our students to adopt the role of servant leaders, acting with empathy and integrity to make unique and positive contributions to society and the world.
We are ambitious for our students and will always challenge them to strive for the very best that they can achieve, overcoming the barriers they face and taking personal responsibility for their actions. We provide clear expectations for them so that they are safe and confident in our school and we develop their resilience and confidence so they can truly discover themselves, living a life of integrity with pride.
We make a dedicated effort to learn as much as we can about each student, aiming to truly know them. This commitment allows us to provide an environment of love and care, enabling students to flourish spiritually, emotionally, and academically.
An emphasis on personal and spiritual development allows students to grow in the understanding of their own faith and others. Opportunities for prayer, reflection, and collective worship in our peaceful chapels form an integral part of school life. Students have opportunities to reflect on their lives and the unique role they play in the world around them through prayer and liturgy, collective worship, assemblies and retreats. These opportunities allow them time to think deeply, discuss, and evaluate their own beliefs so they learn more about who they truly are and who God created them to be.
When students share their increasing knowledge of themselves with us, we can encourage them to be true to themselves in an environment full of Christ’s love, enabling all students to feel known and loved.
