There are many occasions during the school year when we all gather together outside the more formal context of prayer or worship.
These assemblies are often held in the Susan Milner Hall (our multi-purpose space in the centre of the school) and may be led by the Headmaster, other members of staff or groups of pupils. They address a particular aspect of school life or a topic in our PSCHE syllabus. Class-led assemblies are often used to present and explain some aspect of our community life or to celebrate an anniversary or cultural event.
Our assemblies gather a large part of the school community together (usually all children from Year 3-8), and can be an ideal chance for adults or children to talk about significant national or international events such as elections, natural disasters etc.
The youngest children have their own weekly assembly sessions when stories are used to introduce topics of importance for the children’s personal development – healthy eating, friendships, personal safety etc.
