St Thomas' Church

Church and School -    A Happy Link

Over the years, a very strong and positive relationship has been established between the local parish church, St. Thomas' at Hanwood and Hanwood School.

The Foundation Governors meet termly with the Headteacher to review RE & Collective Worship and Church/School links. 

Weekly assemblies are led by local clergy and a team from the church offer "Open the Book" assemblies regularly. The school come to the church for their Harvest Festival and Leavers' Service. 

Some church members help with reading and the Parish Administrator Mrs Alison Bebb (also a Foundation Governor) helps with administrative duties. Also Mr Keith Packer (an Associate Member) has provided his experience to support the creation of the school website, as well as giving his time to help with stage-lighting for school performances.
