As suggested by the name, Cardinal Pole is a Roman Catholic school. While it admits a substantial number of non-Catholic pupils,some of the students are from Catholic backgrounds. A religious assembly attended by staff and pupils is held fives times a week. On occasion, Masses replace general assembly. Every student is required to take Religious Education at GCSE level, in keeping with the school's religious ethos. A non-examination Religious Education Programme is also followed by all sixth-form students.
