Working in a Church School

You will find a culture, where the leadership and governors are committed to good employment practice. Our church schools are places with the flourishing of the whole school community at their heart; both children and adults.  Each school has a unique vision that reflects their local context, while being rooted in Christian values and the Christian story.  Our church schools are schools for their local community they are not faith schools for the faithful and therefore welcome pupils and staff of Christian faith, other faiths and beliefs or no faith.  

In our church schools you will find that collective worship and spiritual development are an important part of school life, pupils are encouraged to look outwards as courageous advocates in their local, national and global communities. Our church schools value their close relationship with their parish church, which includes services in the church to mark important festivals and events.

Our schools are inspected as part of a regular cycle by SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools).  This quality assures the school’s outworking of its Christian distinctiveness.
