Our school chaplain is Mr Cowie of South Holburn Chuch on Holburn Street. The school chaplain visits the school taking classes and assemblies and attends and participates in the end of term services.
Since we do not have the accommodation to gather the school on our premises our school end of term services are held in South Holburn Chuch on Holburn Street.
We have stage/departmental assemblies on a regular basis for all pupils throughout the school year.
The pupils and the staff respond to charity action programmes and the needs of others less fortunate than themselves.
