The phrase ‘men and women for others’ was first used by Fr Pedro Arrupe, Superior General of the Society of Jesus 1965 to 1983, who emphasised that a Jesuit education was about more than simply teaching children; it was about guiding pupils to put their gifts and talents towards helping others.
Arrupe’s example is manifested our wide range of activities which help our young people to develop empathy for others and to contribute to resolving the problems of the modern world.
More than 70% of our Sixth formers take part in our Arrupe, working each week in local primary schools, homes for the elderly, charity shops, hospices, special schools and Riding for the Disabled.
