The year-group assembly is an integral part of school life, the most formal part of the weekly timetable. We also meet regularly in our houses. Assembly does much to define our ethos. It is the time of the week when the whole year group or house comes together. It is a spiritual and inspirational occasion for students and staff. Social, moral, spiritual and cultural themes (including fundamental British values) are embedded via assembly.
