Virtual Tour & Visits

Jesus turned. He saw them coming after him. He said to them, `What are you looking for?' They said, `Teacher, where do you live?' Jesus said, `Come and see.' They went and saw the place where Jesus was staying. The time was about four o'clock in the afternoon. They stayed with Jesus the rest of the day. Andrew was one of those two followers of John who heard John speak and went after Jesus. He was Simon Peter's brother. The first thing Andrew did then was to find his brother Simon. He said, `We have found the Messiah!' (Messiah means the Christ, the messenger of God.)

Our website will give you a sense of our school as a community of faith, but there is no substitute for visiting the school and meeting the boys and the staff. We invite you to ‘Come & see’. St Paul teaches us ‘to practice hospitality’(Romans 12:13), and not to neglect ‘to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares’ (Hebrews 13:2). Indeed, St Cuthbert’s own monastic tradition instructs to is ‘to welcome the guest as Christ himself’ (RB 53). Visitors are very welcome to our school.
