We incorporate our six key values of love, respect, forgiveness, gratitude, belonging and understanding in all that we do, underpinning our Ambition Unlimited motto. We are extremely pleased that our students, whether they are Christian or not, tell us that our Christian ethos makes them feel a strong sense of belonging to a community and of being cared for as an individual. They feel supported in forming their own opinions and arriving at answers to the big questions in life.
“This is an outstanding school due to the way every student is known, valued and so enabled to learn.” SIAMS December 2016

Wolverley CE Secondary School is a happy, caring community where students learn to accept and tolerate differences, respect themselves, others and the environment.
In order to help students succeed and guide them we have a chaplaincy team in school.
Who are the Chaplains?
They are Robert Legge and Tim Williams.
Vicar Robert Legge:
I was born in Larne, on the beautiful East Antrim coastline of Northern Ireland and grew up by the sea. My earliest memory is of boats and the ships that sailed from Larne to Scotland. In fact one day, when one of the boats ran aground and got stuck because the tide was particularly low, my teacher took the whole class down to the shore to sketch it! I have always loved being by the sea – even the church I attended when I was younger had a wonderful view of the sea.
After leaving school, I attended the University of Ulster to train as a youth worker, and it was there that I was introduced to Helen, who would later become my wife!
When I graduated from university, I applied for a job as a youth worker in a large secondary school in England, and much to my surprise and delight, I got it! All that hard work had paid off. It was great to work with the young people there – helping them to deal with a whole range of issues such as bullying, exam stress and peer pressure.
About 12 years ago my life and career changed completely! I started training in Oxford to become a vicar, and 5 years ago I moved to Kidderminster where I took up a post as a Church of England vicar in the Kidderminster East Parish. I hadn’t even heard of Kidderminster before! I was also very fortunate to have the opportunity to be one of the chaplains to Wolverley CE Secondary School – a pastoral role in which I can minister alongside staff and students, which is something I very much enjoy being part of.
When I’m not working, I enjoy listening to all kinds of music as well as playing the piano and guitar, reading, long walks, and spending time with my wife.
