St Mary ‘s Church.

A Church School

As a church school there are close links between the parish church and the school.  However, it is a deliberate policy agreed between the school and the church to have very few ‘church places’; a parish church, as the ‘state church’, typically, does not consider its task is to serve only Christians, but all people.

A parish church

An Anglican church seeks to serve the whole community regardless of people’s faith or belief.  For example, people who live within the geographical boundary of the parish have the automatic right to get baptised and married (and have funerals conducted) in the parish church, whether they attend or not.  It is with this ethos that the school is welcomed into the church throughout the year for special services and it is with this ethos that the vicar leads a number of assemblies in the school.
