The Venerable Dr. Joanne Grenfell, Archdeacon of Portsdown visits Charter Academy

The Archdeacon of Portsdown kindly came to officially open the prayer room on Tuesday 5th April. Charter was lucky enough to also be joined by Canon Bob White and Reverend Annie McCabe of St Luke’s. The prayer room is for all staff and students and is regularly used. The prayer room is a reflective space where students can ask questions about faith, pray or go to speak to someone.

The Archdeacon also spent time in year nine and ten lessons being asked various questions about her faith. The students had a fantastic time and felt honoured to meet The Archdeacon.
