Christian Distinctiveness

Christian Distinctiveness at Woodard Academies.

Woodard Academies Trust is dedicated to transforming the futures of young people and the communities they serve. All of our academies embrace a Christian ethos, promoting understanding, celebrating diversity and welcoming students from all faiths and none.

The amalgamation of pastoral care and individual learning development is very special to Woodard Academies Trust, providing an opportunity to support a young person through both their academic and personal development, which go hand-in-hand.

To develop ‘The Whole Child’, each young person’s spiritual and personal development is enriched through the Christian Distinctiveness of each academy. The programme of collective worship, links with local faith groups and other spiritually enriching activities is coordinated at each academy by a dedicated person and led by the Principal. This work is also overseen, and contributed to, by the Senior Provost of the Woodard Corporation and the trust’s Chief Education Officer. These links and activities ensure that the Christian character, values and ethos of the Trust is at the centre of all we do.

Students and staff of all faiths and none are welcome and encouraged to participate in activities and events that contribute to this distinctiveness.
