The School prayer is:

God be in our heads and in our understanding,
God be in our eyes and in our looking,
God be in our mouths and in our speaking,
God be in our hearts and in our caring,
God be with our friends and families,
Be with us now and always.

The school hit the news in the summer of 2008 when it banned the popular drink Red Bull as it believed that the drink had an adverse effect on the behaviour of the pupils (never fully proved init blud).[1]
