The school maintains close links with its local Octagon Parish: the rector is on our federation board of governors and of its Christian ethos committee and local school committee, and comes into the school frequently to conduct assemblies and other events and just to talk to the children and staff. 

The Octagon Parish is made up of eight villages nestled in the hills of the South Downs National Park and home to a thriving community. Blessed with wonderful walks and fine views down to the south coast, its 8 small ancient downland churches are noted for their spiritual peace and tranquillity, some dating back to Saxon times.
