Collective Worship

In Church of England schools, collective worship reflects the traditions of the Church of England and develops learners’ understanding of Anglican traditions and practice.

Many schools work with the local vicar and other church members to plan and deliver acts of worship that are invitational, inclusive and inspirational. There is plenty of flexibility in the provision of collective worship to enable all pupils to benefit without compromising their beliefs.


As we are unable to join together for this year’s Leavers’ Services at the Cathedral, please click below for this year’s e-Leavers’ Service for our family of schools: ‘Our Journey Together with the Good Shepherd.’  We hope that you enjoy worshipping together in your school communities, to celebrate in particular with the children who will be leaving at the end of this academic year.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to and supported the production of this year’s service.

Please note that schools can still access the private page of this website for more information and support materials.
