Collective Worship

Collective worship is the unique heartbeat of our school and is offered as part of a wider opportunity for pupils and adults to encounter faith by engaging in conversations about God, both as individuals and together.


Collective worship gives pupils and school staff the opportunity to:

  • Engage in an act of community.
  • Express praise and thanksgiving to God.
  • Be still and reflect.
  • Explore the big questions of life and respond to national events.
  • Foster respect and deepen spiritual awareness.
  • Reflect on the character of God and on the teachings of Christ.
  • Affirm Christian values and attitudes.
  • Share each other's joys and challenges.
  • Celebrate special times in the Christian calendar.


A typical week of worship would include:

  • Worship led by Reverend Heather.
  • Worships led by Miss Coldrick.
  • Worships led by Mrs Hands around the term's value.

Parents and local advisors are invites to join worship at various times during the school term. Our Worship Council play a vital role in supporting and leading worship too.
