School Services

Our new schedule, which started in the academic year 2013/14, school services are linked to particular days and seasons in the Church’s year, as indicated by the table below for the academic year 2017/18.  This has given a far greater sense that school worship follows the Church’s year.  We have also made sure that:

  • Services include activities to engage the children with the theme of the day/season e.g., reading of the church’s roll of honour at Remembrance, burning of sins on Ash Wednesday.
  • There is more careful preparation for school services: this is organised by a Foundation Governor (Roy Tungatt) who helps children prepare prayers, readings and sometimes short sketches.
  • The songs, for which the children are prepared by the music teacher, are appropriate to the day/season.
