Chaplaincy

CHAPLAINCY

The Chaplaincy at Hope Academy is the heart of the school. It is from here that we strive to live out our mission of working together to inspire excellence guided by Christian values. The spirit of chaplaincy is embedded throughout the school as pupils are encouraged to help others through volunteer work, charity work, and in their actions around school and the wider world.

CHRISTIAN LIFE

There are a number of Christian Services throughout the school year, starting with a Joint Denominational Welcome Service for the Year 7s in October which welcomes them into the school community and anticipates the talents and skills we will nurture: “Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16).

There are services at both Christmas and Easter at our local churches and a host of events that pupils can be involved in as can be seen from our Chaplaincy Calendar:
