The school continues to enjoy very close links with its lively and vibrant local church, St Botolph's, Chevening.  2018 saw great celebrations of 200 years of schooling in the Parish, marking the original intention and foundation by the local parishes of Chevening, Sundridge and Brasted and the Earl and Countess Stanhope.

 

The school and church congregation joined together for a special Sunday Service to mark the special anniversary, with previous Rectors, the local MP and Rochester Diocesan Board in attendance. Following a super exhibition of learning in school, local residents, past pupils, families and staff spent time happily reminiscing and sharing different school experiences and memories; the current pupils created a permanent memorial of '200 years of education' by creating a wonderful mosaic with Sue Salter, which was installed in July 2019.

 

Currently, there is an interregnum at St Botolph's Church, so we are welcoming ministerial support from local Anglican and evangelical churches for regular Acts of Worship in school. We join the St Botolph's congregation on a Sunday once a term, for our school service, as well as visiting the church for our own internal services, such as Harvest, Christmas, Easter and Leavers' Services. 

 

The church has a link with the Diocese of Kondoa in Tanzania, which the school shares, through its link with Mpendo School. Children from Chevening have visited the school, following arrangements with the church and later gave exciting reports on all that they had been up to whilst in Tanzania.
