Church Status and Links


We are well supported by our local parish church St Mary’s. Rev Malcolm Tyler regularly leads worship at Walsgrave C of E Academy and is the chair of the Local Governing Body.
Walsgrave School’s association with St Mary’s goes back many years. The church is a landmark to the local area offering much support and respite for many in our community.
At Walsgrave C of E Academy we celebrate our faith in a number of ways. Each classroom has a ‘Reflection’ area where children are encouraged to sit quietly and read or write prayers. We have a special Prayer Tree where children can write and attach their prayers. Each class has its own candle, which is brought into the room at different times during the week.
We celebrate the customary seasons such as Christmas, Easter and Harvest Festival. School Services are held at St Mary’s during the year.
