Spirituality and Virtues

Throughout its long and rich history, Christ's College has maintained its foundation in Christian values, encouraging boys to live lives underpinned by honesty, respect, spirituality, justice, compassion and stewardship.

These are timeless values which, once learned, serve each boy well throughout his life. Our Chaplain guides the spiritual life of the school, following the broad ethos of Anglicanism, whilst recognising the multi-denominational nature of our community. College welcomes boys of all religions and cultures.

At the heart of the school stands the Chapel. All boys attend Chapel services on Monday and Friday mornings, congregational singing practice on Wednesdays, and at least two Sunday services throughout the term. Parents and families are warmly welcomed at Sunday services.

Boys are invited to be baptised if they wish, and a Confirmation course is offered to Year 12 and 13 students.

In religious education classes, boys have the opportunity to learn about the great religions of the world, and to reflect on their own beliefs. Knowing about religion, philosophy and ethics is not only valuable to finding meaning in life, but is also essential for a broad education, and foundational for other subjects, from art to English to history.

We aim to help the boys develop a mature understanding of social and cultural differences and to meet the challenges of good citizenship.
