Assemblies

These are held daily in the school hall, although each day two year groups remain with their Form Tutors, and one year group meets with its Year Tutor in the Community/Dining Room.

Formal assemblies are required by the Education Act (1988). They seek to provide a spiritual dimension to the day and have the characteristics of:

  • Contemplation
  • Celebration
  • and Community

They are mainly Christian in their teaching and should lead students to reflect upon their daily lives, relationships and responsibilities. If parents wish, their children can be withdrawn from assemblies and RE lessons.
