Chaplaincy and Assemblies
The Academy assemblies are run weekly; they are linked to the themes of the week and are led by the Senior Leadership Team, Heads of House, Church Schools Co-ordinator and local Vicars.
This year the academy has introduced an incumbent programme of chaplains; these chaplains work in parishes in the local community.
We would like to introduce you to two of our Chaplains.
