Description

We are based in the centre of London, England, at the parish of St Patrick’s in Soho – an area poor in spirit.

Organizational Statement of Faith


SPES is a Catholic programme and the life of the school is based on four pillars – Spiritual Formation, Academic Formation, Community Living and Missionary Outreach. Together these four pillars help to build a balanced programme where each student has the opportunity for personal development and spiritual growth, allowing them time to grow closer to the Lord, deepen ones faith, to become more knowledgeable in the Church’s teachings along with discovering about themselves and learning about others.
