At Wells, fostering a true sense of community and belonging is absolutely central what we do.
One way of achieving this is through our two weekly whole Senior School assemblies.
Our Monday morning assembly in the Cathedral takes the form of a short service with music, readings and an address that is designed to encourage and challenge pupils to think about moral and philosophical ideas, as well as promote values which are core to our community such as kindness, respect and acceptance. This may sometimes be set within a Christian context, but our aim is to ensure that the message is relevant to all pupils, whatever their beliefs.
The Senior School also meets in Cedars Hall each Thursday morning before lessons start. This assembly usually includes a musical performance and a celebration of the achievements of pupils and staff. Speakers may also address the School on a variety of topics including current affairs, ethical issues, our sense of shared history and, as part of our wider UK educational responsibility, ‘fundamental British values’.
