Welcome to our New Chaplain!
Welcome to our new school Chaplain, The Reverend Graham Wright! The father of two daughters, Mr Wright is married to Joanna, a Headmistress in Witley, and takes over from The Reverend Sarah Norbron, the school’s Chaplain for the past four years. Since his ordination, he has undertaken parish ministry and also worked for the international charity The Leprosy Mission before moving to school chaplaincy. The family relocated from York where Mr Wright was House Master of a junior boarding house, a teacher and school chaplain. Gordon’s is the fourth school in which he has ministered. He will continue the daily Chapel Services, Holy Communion during a Friday lunchtime, an informal worship group, as well as preparing candidates for the annual Confirmation Service. However, he would also like to introduce Chaplain’s Dinners, a prayer group for parents and informal gatherings with students to explore Christianity. He is already keenly anticipating the start of the Gordon’s Parade Services. “The Pipes and Drums band parades are very special” he said, adding, “particularly in England. Three Parades this term and then London [Whitehall Parade] – I’m looking forward to that!”.
