Church School

Christian Vision

We are proud of being a Church School.

The school was founded on Christian principles[1] in 1858 and enables children to perform to their full potential.[2]  Children are valued as individuals, as much for their endeavours as their achievements.  The school is all about people and sets high academic standards in all subjects.  The “Golden Rules”, based on Christian values,[3] give an enduring moral compass.

[1] Deeds of Trust

[2] Life in all its fullness – St John

[3] Fruits of the Spirit – St Pauls letter to the Galatians 522-23

Collective Worship

Our daily act of Collective Worship, designed to develop Christian knowledge and spirituality, is central to the life of our school. The whole school regularly attends special services in the Parish Church, at which parents and villagers are welcome.

Parents have the legal right to withdraw their children from the act of Collective Worship.

Links with the Church

The school holds Harvest, Christmas and Easter Services at the church. In addition, a Year 6 Leavers’ service takes place there at the end of the Summer Term. All these services are well supported by parents and friends. Our vicar is a school Governor and regularly leads our Collective Worship and we have strong links with Northchurch Baptist Church in Berkhamsted.
