Spiritual Life & Chapel

Although the School’s and College’s Anglican foundation informs our values, there are no denominational restrictions and boys of all faiths and backgrounds are welcomed: in this spirit, formal assemblies for the main school are held each morning, touching on a variety of spiritual, moral and ethical matters. There is a whole school assembly in New College Chapel once a week. The School/College Chaplain supports the pastoral work of the school.

New College Chapel is a first-class example of fourteenth century perpendicular architecture and is an inspiring part of a boy's weekly experience at New College School. The School community comes together for a non-denominational service in the Chapel every Wednesday morning, followed by coffee for parents afterwards in the College Hall.

We also use the Chapel for a beginning of year service, for the carol service and leavers' service and for concerts and plays. Boys' families are welcomed at all of our Chapel services and events.
