Worship and Christian Life at the School
There is a daily act of worship, which is a highly valued part of each school day, and grace is said before meals and a prayer at the end of the 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 drama, dance and art work alongside readings, 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 on behaviour and on the difference between right and wrong.
We have strong links with St Peter’s Church and the local community in Hever and Edenbridge. There are five main church services each year, namely Harvest, Remembrance, Christmas, Easter and Leavers Services and we warmly welcome family and friends to these services.
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.
