Christian Values

A Caring & Nurturing Environment

Steyning Grammar School is a place where students of all faiths will find a caring and nurturing environment that is integral to school life.  There are regular opportunities for reflection throughout the school week and local Christian leaders are invited to be involved in the life of the school as part of their work in the community.

We enjoy a close relationship with St Andrews C of E Church where each year group has its Christmas Carol services.  Easter, Harvest and end-of-year services are also held at the local Parish Church for those in years 7 and 8.

Many of the year groups have lunch time Christian Union meetings where students can explore and discuss issues of faith in an informal and supportive environment.

Our Distinctive Christian Values

Christian Ethos Statement

Act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with your God. Micah 6.8  

We seek to provide a safe and inspiring learning environment, prioritising holistic spiritual values and striving for excellence by being both challenging and supportive.

We work towards unlocking everyone's potential, staff and pupils alike, which makes the school a wholesome place to study and demonstrates our own self-worth.

We respect one another, regardless of faith or background, celebrate diversity and seek to live lightly as stewards of God's world.


Rev Peter Butchers, a local Baptist minister, is the School and Boarding House Chaplain and he is involved with co-ordinating assemblies for local ministers, lunch time Christian Union groups and supporting staff and students.  He regularly visits staff and students and organises services for those in boarding.
