We celebrate the enduring connection between our school and the Church of Holy Rood in Holybourne. Established in 1719, our school boasts a rich history intertwined with the traditions and values of the church, creating a bond that goes beyond mere geography.

At the heart of our partnership is the weekly Collective Worship, a cherished tradition led by members of the clergy and esteemed leaders from other churches in Alton. This spiritual gathering serves as a cornerstone of our school community, fostering a sense of unity and purpose among students and staff alike.

Throughout the year, we come together to observe Christian festivals and mark significant moments in the liturgical calendar. From poignant Easter services at the Church of Holy Rood, where children engage in the profound Stations of the Cross, to Christmas Carols Around the Tree performed by Key Stage 2, accompanied by biblical readings, and the delightful Nativity plays presented by Key Stage 1, these celebrations of faith and fellowship enrich our school experience.

Beyond these special occasions, all classes embark on regular visits to the Church of Holy Rood, deepening their understanding of Christian teachings and nurturing their spiritual growth.

We are also blessed to welcome Open The Book, whose engaging presentations of Bible stories through drama captivate our children and ignite their curiosity about the sacred texts.

As we continue to cultivate this treasured relationship between our school and the Church of Holy Rood, we invite you to join us in honouring the shared values of love, compassion, and service.
