Spiritual Development


Uplands College has a Christian ethos and is run under the auspices of the Anglican Church. We are, however, very inclusive in our attitude towards other religions and pupils are encouraged to reinforce the spiritual aspect of their lives.

The College employs a full-time Chaplain, shared with Uplands Prep, who oversees the spiritual dimension of College life.     

The College seeks to nurture an inclusive Christian-based education and offers the following opportunities for spiritual growth:
  • Divinity classes as part of the academic curriculum from Grades 8 to 12
  • Opportunities for worship marked by a weekly Chapel service, which normally includes the celebration of Holy Communion, occasionally interspersed with outside speakers who expose the College Community to various Christian faith perspectives
  • Voluntary opportunities for Christian involvement, such as our weekly Christian Fellowship for pupils during the Wednesday break period
  • Bible study and preparation classes for Admission to Communion and Confirmation
  • An annual Christian Camp attended by up to a third of the College body, run by staff and young volunteers from local Christian communities.
