Collective worship

Collective Worship

Colfe’s School has a Christian foundation and collective worship has a role to play in the daily life of the School. There is a full School assembly on Monday of each week. These are taken by various members of staff or SMT and often involve the pupils. They consist of a hymn and prayers with a talk or presentation on a religious or moral theme. During the school year, the Christmas Carol Service and the Founder's Day service are important occasions in the spiritual life of the School.

On Thursday of each week, there is a regular programme of lectures for the Lower Sixth with considerable use of outside speakers. The topics range widely over religious, moral, political and social issues; and they are designed to widen the horizons of the students and to challenge their thinking.
