Collective Worship

Our daily acts of collective worship play a vital role in the life of our school and this is where we come together to share what is important.  As Deanery is a Church of England school, the acts of worship are mainly Christian in character.  We observe the cycle of the Anglican year and celebrate the Christian calendar.

We are a Deanery School for the 14 parish churches within the Deanery of Sutton Coldfield.  These include:

St John's, Walmley

St Michael's, Boldmere

St George's, Minworth

St Peter's, Maney Hill

St Cuthbert's, Castle Vale

St George's, Minworth

St Nicholas, Curdworth

St John the Baptist, Middleton

St Chad, Wishaw

All Saint's, Four Oaks

St James, Mere Green

 St Columba's, Banners Gate

Holy Trinity, Sutton Coldfield

St Chad, Sutton Coldfield

 Emmanuel, Wylde Green

We invite the clergy in to support our worship as well as other Christian organisations such as KidsUk, Birmingham City Mission and Gospel Choirs.

We often visit St John's Walmley for services and celebration of the Christian calendar e.g. Christmas, Easter, Harvest and Mothering Sunday.  Parents are very welcome to join us on those occasions.  Beliefs and customs of other religious traditions are respected and valued and children from other faiths are welcome in the school.  Parents have the right to withdraw their child from collective worship.  If a parent wishes to consider this option, Mrs Yates should be approached.
