We are a Church school. This means that we actively promote the Christian values of love, kindness, honesty, peace respect and trust regardless of background, colour, ethnicity or faith.
We have close links to our local parish Church of St Alkmund's in Whitchurch who in turn belong to Churches Together in Whitchurch.
