Confirmation Classes

“The school has strong and supportive links with the team from St Philip’s Church. As members of the governing body and the ethos group they are fully involved with the development of the school. Their varied work with children, including preparing them for confirmation, is a much valued part of school life.” Church Inspection Report


Children in Year 5 and Year 6 have the opportunity to attend Confirmation classes which are led by one of our governors, who is also a member of the clergy at St Philip Westbrook Church. The classes  begin each January and involve learning more about the Christian faith. Following this, children and parents can decide if they wish to be confirmed and further classes will then take place to prepare the children for confirmation. In May, a special confirmation service is held at St Elphin’s church.
