As a Church of England academy, we are committed to supporting the spiritual and faith development of all of our students.
Reverend Louise Nicolls, our Academy Chaplain, is responsible for co-ordinating our ecumenical chaplaincy team and has a key role in the development and delivery of Christian worship throughout the academic year. She is also available to talk with any member of the academy community (students, staff or governors) whether or not they are a Christian.
The chaplaincy team runs a variety of lunchtime groups every week. These are open to all students who wish to explore issues of faith in a supportive environment.
Louise is at National on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10.00am to 2.00pm but is contactable at any time through email.
There are a variety of lunchtime groups which usually meet in the Whiting Room and are led by members of the Chaplaincy Team. The purpose of the groups is to provide students with a space to have lunch and explore questions of faith with one another. Students of any faith or no faith are welcome to attend.
