Jesuit Institute Programme

The Jesuit Institute offers a programme of conferences for Jesuit schools and schools with an Ignatian identity.

There are regular residential meetings for Heads (twice a year), Deputy Heads (once a year), Chaplains (three times a year), Heads of RE (once a year), and Chairs of Governors (once a year). There is also an annual training day for new governors.

The Shared Vision programme provides formation of teachers and support staff in the Jesuit identity and mission of the schools.

There are also individually guided Ignatian retreats for school staff.

Each year there is a leadership conference for Sixth Form pupils. And a conference for Y6 pupils from the primary schools.
