The core values of the Royal Hospital School are based on the Christian faith. However, pupils come from a variety of religious and cultural backgrounds and we welcome and respect all people with other beliefs and those with no belief.
Families and Friends are Welcome on Sundays
The Chapel is regarded as being at the spiritual hub of school life and all pupils are expected to regularly take part in the act of collective worship. A Chapel Service occurs two mornings per week and on most Sundays. Families and friends are always very welcome to join the congregation on Sundays and major services are very well attended. We welcome visiting speakers throughout the year and pupils regularly lead and participate in the chapel services.
Pupils can prepare for confirmation according to the rites of the Church of England and the chaplain facilitates a weekly theological society and Christian fellowship for pupils exploring and developing their faith.
The Chapel and Chamber Choirs
The Chapel also plays an important part in musical life at RHS. The Chapel and Chamber Choirs are renowned for their impressive regular performances of sacred and secular music and those who live in the local area often refer to the 'Holbrook Sound' when the massed voices of the whole school can be heard during congregational practice and Chapel services.
