Christian and family values

Christian concern was the motivation of the School’s initial foundation, and today pupils of all faiths appreciate the emphasis on Christian family values which underpin our caring and compassionate community.

The focus of the School’s spiritual life is our beautiful Chapel. All pupils and staff attend services two or three times a week and there are many opportunities to share Holy Communion on a voluntary basis. These services aim to raise the spiritual awareness of pupils and are made lively with active pupil participation, whether through singing in the choir or leading the worship. For those who are keen to explore issues of faith further, there are opportunities through a variety of faith-based discussion groups.

The whole community is encouraged to treat others as they would wish to be treated. The pupil-led School Charity Committee is closely linked to the School’s caring ethos.
