So, what is it like working in a Catholic School?

Online Formation during Pandemic:
a project in partnership with Redemptorist Publications

& the Dioceses of Plymouth & Salford.


​​​​​​​​​​​​​​An online approach to training and formation for teachers and support staff. Whether you are a practising or lapsed Catholic, practice a different faith, or are not religious at all, the Catholic school system can sometimes be a bit confusing. These sessions deal with some of your possible concerns. Issues covered include getting to grips with the Catholic language and ethos, thinking about the curriculum you can offer and what do we mean by Catholic Social Teaching?

Prayers for Schools

This book is not just for teachers:it is a fantastic aid for support staff, caretakers, lunchtime supervisors, and governors, providing a clear exposition on Catholic education, so that you can be confident the next time a child asks you a tricky question.

Written specifically for headteachers and those in senior leadership, this book is a personal and practical guide to leadership in Catholic schools based on the real-life experiences of the author as well as a variety of other headteachers.

This highly practical and accessible resource looks at the key priorities that every governor needs to be confident about in order to fulfil his or her leadership role in the mission of the Church in education today.

Raymond Friel brings all his experience as a teacher and headteacher in Catholic schools to this new collection of prayers for teachers to use with their pupils in the course of the busy school year.
