At the heart of our church school’s is their worship. Often this is still referred to as ‘assembly’ but the distinctive Christian ethos of our schools means that when the students gather together time is spent in worship. In a school context this means having time for reflection and thinking about:

:

  • Celebration,

  • Acknowledging when we mess up

  • Identity as

  • Individuals

  • Our Corporate Identity The Sense of the other – metaphysical concepts such as Love, Hope, Joy, Sadness, Life, Truth and GOD

  • Relationships

Tring School is a church school but it also is the only secondary school in Tring so has to function as a community comprehensive school.  The Tring Team Parish supports the school by providing a chaplaincy team to the school.  Currently this is run by the Reverend Jane Banister and Reverend Michelle Grace.  The chaplains deliver regular Christian assemblies / collective worship.  We try and paint a bigger picture and provide weekly themes which tutors can expand upon.  The chaplains support the Christian Union and Choc and Chat; lead Life Skills lessons on Bereavement and Family Break up; maintain a pop up chapel in the library; liaise with House Office on pastoral care and bereavement issues; liaise with PRS (RE) department and help with lessons as needed; and work with sixth form peer mentors who support younger students.  In months and years to come we are looking to expand our work.

Bishop Wood is a voluntary aided Church Junior School with very close links to the school.  Half of the governors are foundation governors meaning they are appointed by the school.  The rector, Huw, works closely with the school and delivers a weekly assembly in the school or in church.   Worship is important in the life and identity of the school.  In a recent inspection Bishop Wood was found to be an outstanding church school

Long Marston is a voluntary aided Church primary school with very close links to the church.  Half of the governors are foundation governors meaning they are appointed by the school.  The vicar in Long Marston, Jane, works closely with the school and delivers a weekly assembly in the school or in church and is also chair of governors

Aldbury is a voluntary controlled Church primary and nursery school with very close links to the church.  Reverend Michelle Grace takes weekly collective worship and the school visits the church on a regular basis.  There are two foundation governors provided by the Tring Team Parish.
