The School’s most recent Diocesan Section 48 inspection took place in 2018:

The experience of Catholic worship for pupils at Cardinal Vaughan is outstanding.  The liturgical year, with its cycle of scripture readings and themes, serves as the foundation of the extensive opportunities for prayer and reflection.  The school wholeheartedly believes the celebration of the Eucharist to be at the heart of the Catholic life of the school.  Mass is celebrated twice each week and the Sacrament of Reconciliation and Benediction also take place weekly.  Assemblies and other acts of worship take place on a daily basis……  Pupils leave the school with an extensive knowledge of and deep appreciation for Catholic worship.
