Friends of Bishop Justus

Who are Friends? How to contribute to the School Fund

Dear Bishop Justus Parent,

We are really looking forward to working with you whilst your child is studying at Bishop Justus. We will ensure that transition into secondary school is as smooth as possible. Where possible we will do the following: visit primary schools to meet students and class teachers, invite students in for a morning if they are the only students attending from their primary schools, arrange an evening to meet their form group and students attend a taster day in July.  We also run the Aquinas Summer Project for a week in August. I am sure that your child is excited by the new opportunities that they are about to embark on and ready for the new challenges ahead of them. Staff here at Bishop Justus are ready to support and develop your child through faith, love and learning.

A Welcome Message from our Head Students

Hello! We are Bishop Justus' Head Students and we thought it would be helpful to give you some advice before your first day! 

When you first start this new chapter of your education it will seem daunting, but as you start to make new friends and connections with your teachers you will soon see just how enjoyable it can be. Everyone is in the same position so being supportive and caring towards each other will massively help ease the transition. Here at Bishop Justus community is one of our key foci. We ensure that everyone feels safe and comfortable, allowing you to thrive from each other’s achievements and grow as a cohort. 

Throughout your years at Bishop Justus you will have many opportunities both in your academic studies and your personal development. You will be able to join many sporting and music clubs and go on multiple trips locally and abroad. These will help you thrive as a cohort and develop your skills. We encourage you to take every opportunity provided by the school for you to have the best experience. 

We hope that you will make many fond memories from your time here at Bishop Justus, from your first days in the school all the way to your leavers’ celebrations. One thing to be sure, is that when you arrive you will be greeted with open arms and a loving community. 

We look forward to welcoming you! 

Katie Isaacs and Rowan Bulpitt

Chaplaincy and Worship at Bishop Justus


Our Chaplaincy department looks after our worship and the Christian life of this Church of England school. It is led by Mr Kings, who is a teacher here as well as our Lay Chaplain. 

Daily worship is an important part of school life at Bishop Justus, it is a time when our school family can come together and celebrate life in all its fullness. 

Worship takes place every morning, mainly in tutor groups and focuses on our six Christian school virtues: faith, love, wisdom, hope, courage and kindness. We take this time not only to pray and worship, but also to discuss the big issues which are happening in the world around us and to share different opinions. Our worship also provides opportunities for stillness, as well as creative activities. Lee Kings

There is also the chance for students to become involved in the student leadership of worship and in doing so, develop their own leadership skills. 

We are blessed to have our own school chapel which is a sacred space used for small group worship, prayer and also lunchtime activities. 

We look forward to you joining our school family and worshipping together.

Mr. Kings - Lay Chaplain


The Bishop Justus Family Prayer Group

Chapel cross2

We very much view our school community as a family and parents and carers of our students are part of this family. We are also a Christian worshipping community and as part of his ethos, parents and carers of all our students are invited to attend a fortnightly prayer meeting on Zoom. These are very informal prayer meetings led by me, with a brief introductory reflection on a Christian message and then the meeting is open for prayer. There is no requirement to pray out loud, you can simply be present, or if you wish say a prayer and during the 30 minutes or so that the meeting lasts, everyone is welcome to join and leave as they wish. Email invitations are sent to parents and carers a few days before each meeting. This has been such a powerful and supportive aspect of our school family life and as parents and carers of our new year 7 students, you are very welcome to join us in September. 

Meanwhile, may I leave you with our Bishop Justus school prayer, which is based on our six Christian virtues: faith, kindness, courage, wisdom, hope and love: 

God of all, increase our FAITH.
Help us to extend KINDNESS,
value WISDOM,
be filled with HOPE:
and above all LOVE as we are loved.
(Grant us: Success through faith, love and learning.)

Mr Kings 

Lay Chaplain
