There are approximately one million people living in England who belong to the Church of England. If you are interested in finding out more about the Church of England, its faith, ministry and worship, you may wish to visit its website: https://www.churchofengland.org/.

You may be interested to know that all Church of England Primary and Secondary Schools are assessed on their Christian distinctiveness approximately every five years. This process is called ‘SIAMS’ (the Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools) and is organised nationally in co-operation with Dioceses. St. George’s last SIAMS inspection was in February 2016. We were found to be “Outstanding across all areas”. You can find the report here:
