Faith in School

Charter Academy is undergoing exciting improvements which are aimed at further developing the social, moral, spiritual and cultural lives of our students. Now existing at Charter Academy is a group of staff who meet weekly to further embed the Christian values.

What happens at Charter?

Prayer Meeting – Once a week a small (but growing) prayer group of staff and students meet and pray for the academy, our students and staff.

Student-written prayer for the academy (to be revised in the Autumn term)

Youth work – Breakfast Club

FISCH (Faith in schools)-This is a group of staff members and local clergy who discuss the Christian values. The group discuss topics such as Collective Worship and Charity work. The group welcomes all visitors.

Themes for the week are used in tutor time, weekly Collective Worship (assembly). – The academy benefits from themes for each week which encourages staff and students to reflect upon the lives of one another and the wider community.

Whole school Collective Worship: Charter also holds a whole school collective worship for staff and students who have a very thought-provoking and inspiring assembly, led by our great links to the Church.
