FORM TIME, ASSEMBLIES AND COLLECTIVE WORSHIP                 

At Archbishop Blanch school assemblies and collective worship work on a two week cycle, with year assemblies and collective worship taking place Monday - Thursday (with Tuesday and Fridays being collective worship for Years 7 and 8 and Years 9, 10 and 11 respectively).

On alternative weeks pupils also attend assemblies and collective worship led by our school leadership team with Year groups divided into three sessions; Years 7 and 8, Years 9 and 10 and finally Years 11, 12 and 13.

As part of our collective worship timetable, pupils are encouraged to develop their understanding of events, issues and topics in the safe and nurturing Christian environment that Archbishop Blanch School provides.

Our collective worship is led by not only by our school staff and visiting speakers, but also the pupils themselves. This allows our pupils to further develop strong Christian values and a greater community and faith ethos.

When not participating in assemblies or collective worship, our pupils are encouraged to engage in a range of activities during their form time. These activities include allowing pupils time to improve their literacy by devoting time to reading.

A Caring Christian Environment

"Our two daughters have had the best start in life thanks to the caring, enthusiastic and hardworking staff of Archbishop Blanch School. Choosing the right secondary school for one's children is such a difficult task, but we could feel the special ethos of ABS on our first visit. You inspire your pupils to achieve the academic heights of which they are capable in a happy, safe and vibrant environment."
Archbishop Blanch Parent.
