St Gregory’s School is within the Westminster Diocese, and forms part of the parish of St Benedict’s. The school has a long history of celebrating mass each Friday at Ealing Abbey, alongside our fellow parishioners. Regular liturgies are celebrated in school and pupils have opportunities to participate in the Sacraments, including Reconciliation during Advent and Lent.
Pupils participate in a daily act of worship. In KS2, this is pupil-led and follows the 4 part format Gather - Listen - Respond - Mission. Our RE Ambassadors support pupils across this school with Collective Worship and join other schools across the Deanery in pupil-led Collective Worship each month.
Our Patron Saint is St Gregory, patron saint of teachers, students and musicians. St Gregory lived c. 540 in Rome. He is known for the emphasis he put on missionary work and service to the poor, and for his contribution to a style of singing known as the Gregorian Chant. His feast day is celebrated on September 3rd.
Our school’s values are communicated and celebrated through our school song, our motto and our prayer. Our sports houses are named after St Ann, St Bernadette, St John Bosco and St Joseph. At the end of year 6, teachers nominate a pupil to receive the Abbott’s prize, a prestigious award that recognises a significant contribution to the school.
We are committed to social justice and support a range of local charities, including Catholic Children’s Society, CAFOD and local charity, Emmaus House Acton Homeless Concern. Our choir makes visits to local residential houses including Chestnut Lodge and St David’s home.
