St. Cuthbert’s Chapel, fittingly located in the heart of the College building, provides the cornerstone of a Worksop education. Regardless of whether or not as questioning adolescents they accept it, Chapel life:
- Gives every pupil active experience of Christianity
- Signifies the foundations of western civilisation and culture
- Demonstrates to pupils a value system and ethos that can assist them throughout their life
Your child will be expected to attend Chapel, whether for the weekly Eucharist, morning services or the termly Evensongs. Whilst Christian worship remains a focus of College life, we welcome pupils of all faiths and none at all, for we encourage our pupils to respect and to understand all beliefs. Our Anglican ethos reflects the thinking of our founder, Nathaniel Woodard, and we are proud to be part of the Woodard family of schools. Click here for further information on Woodard Schools.
The work of the Chapel is co-ordinated by the Chaplain who works closely with his counterpart at Worksop College Preparatory School, Ranby House, and with the Provost of the Woodard Corporation. As well as organising services and preparing candidates for Confirmation, the Chaplain plays a critical role in the pastoral care of all pupils and staff. He also leads our programme of Religious Studies, which is part of the core curriculum for junior pupils and an aspect of the General Studies course for Sixth Formers.
The Chapel brings together the community, both pupils and staff, and we actively encourage participation through hymn singing, music making and the leading of services by pupils. Charitable giving is a critical part of Chapel life and every House chooses a charity to support.
