Sixth Form 

at Archbishop Ilsley Catholic School

Catholic Life in the Sixth Form

May God the Father, who made us, bless us. May God the Son, who redeemed us, send healing into our midst. May God the Holy Spirit, who gives us life, move within us. May God give us eyes to see God, ears to hear God, and hands to bring God's work into the world. May we walk with God and preach the word of God to all. May the angel of peace watch over us and lead us at last by God’s grace to the eternal Kingdom. Amen.


Saint Dominic Pray for us.

Saint Dominic DeGuzman is the Patron of our Sixth Form House.

As a Catholic Sixth form we try to implement a religious influence into all that goes on in our day to day school lives. As our school patron saint is Saint Dominic we try to carry out all our actions in reflection of the school Dominican Values. In Sixth Form to reflect on the spirit of our patron saint Sixth Formers are asked to Catch the fire.  Therefore each term we focus on a particular Dominican Charism and reflect on how we carry these out and keep these going. Along with this we also try to implement the New Zealand Rugby All Blacks 15 principles to support our daily life and future of our Sixth Form.


n Sixth Form we attend multiple liturgical masses per year, two joining the Holy Souls parish, the Celebration of Saint Dominic, Ash Wednesday Mass, an Advent Hamper Mass and the year 13’s leavers mass in May. Along with this students have the opportunity to pray the Litany of the Hours each morning in the School Chapel at 0800. Students are also invited to the Exposition and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament on Thursday lunchtimes. Students are also invited to pray the rosary at any time in the Chapel but particularly on Wednesday lunchtimes led by the Legion of Mary from Holy Souls parish. Opportunities to practise the faith are in tutor time, assemblies and collective worship.
