Our church - St John the Baptist

St John The Baptist Church, the ancient parish church of the area, is a very short distance away.

It is used regularly by the school for services at significant times of the year.

Our children regularly visit the church to worship. 


In partnership with St John the Baptist Church our children participate in ‘Encounter’ club.

‘Encounter’ is held in Church, on Wednesday mornings 11am - 12pm and is hosted by volunteers from church supported our school staff.

We are delighted to offer the chance for Parents / Carers / Friends and Toddlers to join us too!

The children will take part in lots of activities including ‘Prayer Space’ activities and will work with themes linked to our School Worship.
