There is an established pattern of school assemblies for each year group every week. They are entirely secular in nature and are used to celebrate achievement, promote the values that the school stands for, and encourage a sense of responsibility to others. Assemblies usually take the form of a talk supported by audio/visual technology, followed by an opportunity to reflect.

All students are expected to attend morning assemblies. Parents wishing to discuss this involvement should contact the school.
