Weston Turville C of E School

St Mary’s has strong links with Weston Turville Church of England School.

Regular support

  •  Every Friday Father David and Revd Susan attend the afternoon collective worship.  They also lead it three or four times a term.
  •  To support the RE curriculum both of them come along to take an occasional lesson or answer questions the children may have.  They also enable the children to visit the church for lessons from time to time.
  •  A group of volunteers from the church leads our collective worship on Wednesday mornings (except in the first and last week of each term) through a scheme called Open the Book.
  •  Revd Susan holds the Explorers Club on Wednesdays after school at 3.30 to 4.30 p.m. at the church.  This is open to children between 8 and 11 years of age.
  •  Revd Susan also runs a choir here on Fridays after school.  The Friday Choir sings both in school and at the church, for school events and for some church services with the church choir.

Special events

  •  Two school services are held at the church every year – a Carol Service for the juniors at Christmas and one for all the children at Easter.  For the Easter Service the children create pictures and collages that remain in the church for the season.
  •  Each summer the Jigsaw holiday club is held at the school in the first week of the holidays. This is led by the church and involves volunteers from across the village, as well as ex-pupils.
  •  Father David and Revd Susan lead our Harvest Festival at school every year, when the children bring in boxes of produce, which we take up to the church.  They are used at the church services and then given to homeless shelters and food banks.


  •  And last but not least, there is church representation on the governing body:  Andrew Leleux is the Chairman of Governors, Father David is an Associate Governor, and Tony Eccleston is a Foundation Governor and is involved in many of the activities above.
