Students' Spiritual Life

The Heart of the School

Southwell School is an Anglican school.  It is likely that the All Hallows Chapel will be the first building you see as you enter the schoolgrounds off Peachgrove Road. We have a resident Chaplain who conducts services for students and staff on most days that the school is open.  At Chapel Services, Chaplain inspires and challenges students with stories from many faith traditions;  prayers for wisdom, compassion, healing and comfort are offered; separate Girls' and Boys' Choirs lead the worship.

Chaplain plays a positive role in developing the full potential of the students.  Our Chaplain also teaches religious education classes and helps students at each age level to understand aspects of Christian tradition and how faith relates to everyday life. Topics include belonging, caring, forgiving, thanking, serving, remembering and hoping.
