Christ the King day
On Christ The King day, the school stops to take time to reflect and celebrate its foundation and distinctiveness as a Church of England Voluntary Aided School and to recognise that every pupil is unique and precious. In doing so we celebrate the gifts and talents of our pupils, encouraging their development and enabling them to understand their place in the world.
Christ the King Day is a day out of our normal routine to:
- Remember what it means to be a Church of England School, belonging to the King;
- Think about the Kingdom of God and what it might look like;
- Look for opportunities to put Kingdom values into practice (starting with our School values of Empathy, Respect, Responsibility and Forgiveness)
Typically, each year group will follow a different theme or question for the day. Some students are in school whilst others spend the day in local Churches or visiting Universities. The day includes a range of speakers from local organisations, charities, businesses and churches. Previously, we have welcomed speakers from Amnesty International, Christian Aid and The Engage Trust.
