Collective worship is central to the life of Thorner Church of England School. Our House and Vice Captains are involved in leading worship and reflection, and we try to involve the children wherever we can in asking the big questions regarding the world around them and their part in it.
We have a Friday Family Assembly each week which celebrates achievements in and out of school, and looks to bring our community together in celebrating the children's success in all areas of their education and learning.
The Reverend Andy Nicholson (the Church of England Vicar) visits us monthly to lead worship, and the children also attend services at St Peter’s Church at the start of each term and at special times during the year. The children in KS2 often help to organise and lead these services.
At each act of collective worship a child from KS2 lights the candle and reads the school prayer to start our special time together. The children also change the colour of the cloth on our prayer table according to the time of the Christian Year.

Father in heaven hear our prayer,
