Faith Centre

This Burnley and Pendle Faith Centre is an exciting facility based here at the Campus. It was established to provide a focus for the educational, personal and spiritual development for all our Sixth Form students as well as those from our partner colleges.

The Faith Centre came into existence in September 2006 and reaches out to all the communities of Burnley and Pendle (and beyond) as part of our ‘wider community’. The central activities area and spiritual space have become a real focal point for the community.

The Faith Centre Co-ordinator is Mr Afrasiab Anwar MBE and he is involved in the delivery of our assembly, tutorial and enrichment programme as well as being available to provide support for individual students as appropriate.
