Whittlesford Churches and William Westley Working Together

Whittlesford is lucky in having two churches, the Parish Church and the United Reformed Church, who work together for the good of the village. The school has strong links with both churches.

A team from the churches come into school on each Wednesday morning to take collective worship.

The whole school come to each of the churches in turn for a special acts of worship. At the end of each term we all go to the United Reformed Church (opposite the Lawn) and we go to the Parish Church (the old one in the picture!) for Harvest (in the Autumn), Ascension Day (in Spring) and William Westley Day (in July).

Various classes from the school visit the churches from time to time, to look at the buildings themselves, to think about their history, and just to enjoy these special places.

William Westley is a Church of England school, which means that three of our governors are ‘Foundation Governors’, whose task it is to make sure that the Christian character of the school is maintained.
