The season of Advent marks the start of the Christian year, and is a season of expectation and preparation as the Church looks forward to celebrating the birth of Christ.
Christmas is much more than simply the celebration of Jesus' birth: it reminds us of the central truth of 'the word becoming flesh and dwelling among us' (John 1.14) We mark the Christmas season in our whole school collective worship and end of term church service.
We mark the beginning of the season of Epiphany in our whole school collective worship. The week of Prayer for Christian Unity falls appropriately in the Epiphany season.
Ash Wednesday marks the start of observation of Lent and we mark this with our Ash Wednesday service.We mark Holy week with a whole school collective worship and depending on the term dates, we also have a Maundy Thursday Service.
The season of Easter is celebrated culminating in the feast of Pentecost.
