Chaplaincy

The Reverend Diane Tregale

Our Chaplain is The Reverend Diane Tregale who spends three days a week in school.  She offers a listening ear, pastoral care and prayer for the whole of The Gryphon Community; students, staff and parents.  Much of her time is spent with individual young people but she enjoys being involved with many activities and initiatives including helping with school trips (day and residential), visiting lessons, talking with pupils about faith and spirituality, greeting pupils as they come into school in the morning, running lunchtime clubs and generally being around the school.

As a Church of England School worship is an important part of the life of the school.  We affirm the major contribution that Collective Worship can make in the development of the ‘whole child’.  It gives us the opportunity to come together as a school community to celebrate the experience of being alive and, in doing so, foster a sense of awe, wonder and responsibility for the world in which we live.  Worship also provides opportunities to explore spirituality and Christian values facilitating consideration of concepts such as ‘right’ and ‘wrong’.  Worship helps to prepare students for life-changing moments and enables the school to share together in love, joy, hope, friendship, fear and sadness.  Our Acts of Worship are lead by Diane or visiting speakers from a variety of churches.  Our themes are devised by the Worship Committee which consists of the Chaplain, staff members and students.  Diane leads Communion services and supports the weekly staff prayer group.
