Rev Dr C Rudd (Chair) 26.08.2022 Hello I'm Rev'd Dr Carl Rudd. I am the Rector for St Johns Church just down the road from school towards town. Church comes into school every week to take assembly either with Megan Davies or myself. School comes into church for the special celebrations of the year. This is such a valuable relationship. We believe in what the school is doing for the children that the church seeks to support the work of the school both during the school day and with the local academy committee. No business interests.
