Our Catholic school is part of the Catholic Church. We work in partnership with our local parish and priests in order to enrich the spiritual life of the students, staff and families of our school, especially through the celebration of the Sacraments.

Eileen O'Connor Catholic College Lewisham Shared MissionStaff, local parish and families work together as partners in the spiritual formation and education of all the students at Eileen O’Connor Catholic College Lewisham (EOCC).

This partnership is based on:

  • Mutual trust and respect.
  • Shared responsibility.
  • Effective and positive communication processes and protocols.

The partnership with local parishes:

  • Has students at the centre of our thoughts and actions.
  • Respects student needs.
  • Gives families and parishioners authentic opportunities to contribute to EOCC’s decision-making and governance.
  • Supports all families to become actively involved in their Catholic community within both college and parish.
  • Provides opportunities to allow all members of the community, but particularly the students and families belonging to the college, to deepen their faith.
  • Ensures that the Catholic faith and traditions are nurtured across the generations.
