Founded by the Methodist Church in 1865 the College is a non-denominational, co-educational grammar school, where pupils of all faiths and none are welcomed into a safe, supportive and inclusive environment.
Chaplaincy takes the lead in promoting and developing the spiritual life and ethos of the College, in collaboration with the College’s Board of Governors and leadership team. The spiritual life of the College is most evidently seen in assemblies and other communal activities, but the College ethos permeates all aspects of school life and all relationships within the College.
The Chaplaincy is the most visible sign of the College’s commitment to a spiritual dimension to education and will be a point of reference for students, staff, parents and visitors.
The Chaplaincy supports and develops the spiritual and pastoral life of the College. This is a key function in a large, vibrant and diverse community. It demonstrates tolerance and respect for, and an understanding of, all faith traditions and is available to all members of the College community, regardless of their personal religious or non-religious beliefs.
