Assembly and Chapel Schedules

Our Assembly and Chapel programmes combine with PSHE to raise awareness and educate our students about a range of local, national and international issues. The programmes provide a spiritual and holistic education linked closely to our Boarding Aims (Get Active, Learn and Achieve, Give, Appreciate, and Connect) and our character values (Courtesy, Integrity, Diligence, Enthusiasm and Resilience).
