Worship is an important part of our life as a church school, strongly promoting the Christian values on which the school is based. We meet as a whole school on a weekly basis, which helps to strengthen our community identity. On other days of the week, students meet in year groups, houses, or forms. Form worship allows students to engage with current issues through multimedia presentations which stimulate discussion and reflection. It will usually include our school prayer which is available to view here: School Prayer
Whole school termly Eucharist services give the students experience of more formal worship, and students are taking an increasing role in the leadership of these services, through participation in dramatic readings, music, intercessory prayers and liturgy. Local clergy are invited to participate and speak.
We hold smaller, less formal worship services in our Chapel after school once a half term. These are open to students, parents, governors and members of staff. They are a great opportunity for these different parts of the school community to meet together to worship and pray.
Our Christian Union group meets on a weekly basis at lunchtime to discuss current issues under the leadership of our chaplain.
On our Autumn Focus Day, all of the Year 7 students take part in a Spirituality Day at Blackburn Cathedral. Everyone contributes to a meditation session after which they split into groups to enjoy a number of different workshops. At the end of the day, they all come together to participate in a Eucharist. A video of the day is available to watch below:
