Church Links


As a Church of England School we have close links with St James' church in Cherhill. We attend the church for special services throughout the year such as Harvest, Christmas, Easter and a special service for our Year 6 leavers.


The Rev Matt Earwicker, rector, and Mrs Pam Evans, lay preacher, help the school by taking collective worship on a Tuesday morning.

  • willingness to reflect on their experiences.
