Catholic Planners

Our Catholic Planner places the gospel at the heart of your school by making it accessible to every student.

Catholic Planners

The Penstripe Catholic Planner is designed to reinforce the Catholic ethos in your school and help pupils link faith with their daily lives. Every week has a reflection on the gospel from that week’s Sunday Reading. Designed to follow the calendar of the liturgical year alongside an academic diary that provides plenty of space for homework and student notes.

With all the optional features of our market leading Student Planners, your Catholic Planners can be fully personalised to your school. Personalised pages can be used for everything, from school rules and uniform policy to prayers and timetable information.
