Christian Character

Great Kingshill School is a Church of England voluntary aided school affiliated to the Oxford Diocese. Strong Christian values are at the heart of our work and central to the ethos of the school’s teaching and learning.  One of the broad aims of the School is to help children learn that Christian values, such as Love, Hope, Respect, Forgiveness, Truth and Courage are essential qualities.

Great Kingshill CE School is linked with the beautiful Church of St. Michael and All Angels in Hughendon  and the children worship there as a school community at Christmas. The children also participate in key Christian events in school and present assemblies and other performances to their families and the community.

Once a week collective worship is led in school by a member of the Church clergy

We are a church school – what does that mean?

As a church school, Great Kingshill aims to develop its religious character taking into account the principles of the Church of England and promotes Christian values through the experience we offer to all our pupils.

Our school building

  •        Our school entrance hall and central corridor clearly displays the Christian values that encapsulate our school as well as a large cross.
  •        Each classroom has an area for Christian spiritual reflection and prayer.
  •        We meet for collective worship daily in our school hall or in the classroom
  •        Our prayer tree sits in the school entrance and all members of our school community are encouraged to write prayers which are then used in the weekly prayer group.
