Our Church of England Ethos

We incorporate our six key values of loverespectforgivenessgratitudebelonging 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 Jan Ashton, Robert Legge and Tim Williams

Rev Jan Ashton:

  For a long time I was a teacher in a secondary school up      north. English, of course, is the best subject ever. Well, apart  from faith.

 If teaching is a sprint, short hours but very intensive, being a  vicar is definitely a marathon.

 At the end of the week I wonder exactly what I’ve  done. But, I work from morn till night. You don’t see the fruit  of your work until much later, or perhaps never.

 Vicaring is ok. I love meeting people and helping them  celebrate, or the opposite, be sad, but I do miss teaching. 11-  16 years is such a magical age. They come to you as children but leave as adults.

I miss reading out aloud. Poems were my favourite, though fiction I enjoyed too.

When I was 8 years old, I got a sense that I was being told by God that one day I would work for him.

So it only took me 42 years to realise this ambition! But I did do lots in between. I got married, had four kids, supported my kids’ mental illness, got divorced and worked.

Four years ago I was ordained and now I’m a vicar. At any time I can talk about God, or The Archers, or why are there no proper shops in Kidderminster, or why pray. I’m passionate about all these things.

I think coming into school is good fun. Hopefully I will help people think and give them time to work out what’s what in this confusing world.
