Religion and Spirituality
Treloar’s aims to be a place where every student can be supported holistically in mind, body and spirit. Young people from all faith backgrounds are embraced, including those of no particular faith. A large emphasis is placed on inclusivity and celebrating diversity within the student body. A prayer/mindfulness list has been created which the Chaplain and other staff use to pray/think around the School and College and local community throughout each month. The School also has its own prayer.
Treloar’s has a Christian foundation and employs a Chaplain part-time as a resource for the students. In the School, the Chaplain leads assemblies and end-of-term services, celebrating the great Christian festivals, and raising awareness of the major festivals celebrated by other faiths.
The Chapel is a resource for all students, whether or not they are religious, and every effort is made to support the religious needs of students, whatever their background, both in the classroom and in the residential setting. The Chaplain is available to talk to students individually and also holds regular services in the School and in the Chapel which students can attend on a voluntary basis. Each year there is an opportunity for students to be baptised and confirmed, for which the Chaplain offers preparation classes.
