Our Schools

There are a variety of structures for the church schools including voluntary controlled, voluntary aided and academies. The schools themselves are based in a variety of areas that reflect the nature of the Diocese – urban, outer-estate, sub-urban and rural, catering for pupils of all faiths and none.

Church schools are proud of their Christian foundation and endeavour to ensure that a Christian ethos underpins the pupils’ educational experience, which includes respecting the other faiths of pupils in the school. Most have been judged to be good or outstanding in their distinctiveness and effectiveness as church schools during their Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS).
