In the case of ALL applications to remain in, or join, the Sixth Form at Our Lady of Sion, the Headmaster reserves the right of refusal of any applicant.
Students are expected to share in the ethos of the Community of Sion, which is that of tolerance and bridge-building among all beliefs, colours and nationalities. We feel it is very important for our sixth formers to be aware of God and of acceptable standards of morality and ethics. We hope they will also be concerned with the plight of others less fortunate than themselves, both here and throughout the world. All students are expected to attend assemblies and services throughout the year.
Catholic Holy Day Masses are held in St. Mary's adjacent to the School, while the School Chapel is always open to sixth formers for private meditation and prayer.
