The Stamford Endowed Schools is an Anglican foundation. As such, Christian worship has always played a key part in the lives of those educated here. Pupils attend Chapel at Stamford School and the Chaplain regularly attends both Stamford High School and Stamford Junior School.
The Chaplaincy is here to support a generous Christian witness within The Stamford Endowed Schools. Pupils come to the Endowed Schools with a wide variety of religious experience and the Chaplaincy task is to engage positively with that experience. The task of Chaplaincy is shared within the wider school community, it is not seen as just the ‘Chaplain’s job’.
The Chaplaincy is here to speak of the love of God and to explore how, as a school community; we can learn to see others through the eyes of Christ and to be a blessing to the world.
There are various Christian groups that meet during term time in each school.
Our worshipping life is centred on word and sacrament. There is regular Sunday worship in the Chapel for the Boarding community, supported by the Chapel Choir. A warm welcome is extended to all students, their parents and staff who wish to attend.
The Stamford Endowed Schools Chapel
The School Chapel, St. Paul’s is found on the Stamford School site.
The Chapel has an interesting, if sometimes confusing, history. For a many years it was used as the school room. In 1930 it was reconsecrated. It was doubled in size and became the chapel we have today. It contains War Memorials from the both the First and the Second World Wars.
The Chaplain is the Revd Mark Goodman. He is a member of the Religious Studies Departments in Stamford High School and Stamford School and also teaches drama and coaches hockey.
He is available to students, parents and staff at any time.
He can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
