Collective Worship

Structure of Collective Worship

At St John Fisher we have a particular structure to our Collective Worship (Prayer and liturgy). We follow the Liturgical Calendar for specific feasts to celebrate and reflect upon throughout the year. During the 'Ordinary time' of the year, we try to incorporate aspects that link to our overall whole school curriculum and our school ethos and values. 

All classes from Yr 1 to Yr 6 carry out a class assembly at some point during the school year. These may be linked to the liturgical or school calendar. 

The school chaplains support with Collective Worships (Prayer and liturgy), they guide younger children into the hall, offer a 'thought for the day' and encourage other pupils to reflect and consider the 'Go Forth' aspect of Collective Worship (Prayer and liturgy). They often lead on worship and special services. 

St Scholastica Collective Worship

Pupils prepared a collective worship on Advent. They thought about their promises for Advent and their hopes and dreams. 


St John Fisher have been preparing for the season of Advent. All classes have reflected on this during their RE lessons and collective worship. Pupils have all carried out different activities, whilst we wait, in preparation for the birth of Jesus Christ. 




The St John Fisher chaplains attended an Advent service at St George's Cathedral.
