Worship and Christian Life at the School
There is a daily act of worship, which is a highly valued part of each school day. Grace is said before meals and a prayer is shared at the end of the school day.
Assemblies are led by the Head Teacher, staff, the pupils or clergy. It is an opportunity for the pupils to learn about God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit and to understand the teachings of the Bible. Each week we focus on a different Christian value. In our acts of Worship, Bible teachings are related to the school’s values and to the daily lives of the pupils.
A lively, creative approach includes readings, drama, prayers and music. We use a variety of well-known hymns and modern worship songs, and the pupils actively participate and enjoy worship. It is also a time for quiet prayer and reflection focusing on our school values.
We have strong links with St Peter’s Church and the local community in Hever and Edenbridge. The five main church services each year are: Harvest, Remembrance, Christmas, Easter and Year 6 Leavers'.
All of the collective worship activities that the pupils take part in help to support and deepen the school community's understanding of what we stand for as a Church school.
