St Thomas' Chapel

Our own beautifully decorated Chapel is the spiritual heart of the school. The place where it is possible to find a space, in the midst of the busyness of day to day school, to bring our hopes, joys, fears and sorrows, to reflect upon our lives and God's calling to follow in the way of Christ. The Chapel is the only place on site that is large enough to accommodate the whole school.

Significant dates and seasons are marked by services in the Chapel, including a welcome for new pupils early in the academic year; honouring the fallen at the war memorial and in Chapel, where the role of honour is read; Carol Services for the school and wider community, and Ascension Service for the Buchan School. Chapel Assemblies take place twice a week, with a full service on Friday afternoon.

There is a wealth of contributors to Chapel during the year – readers, intercessors, choristers and preachers, each bringing their unique qualities and gifts to join those of our Christian forebears in this place. Chapel is often at the core of people's memories of the school, their final farewells include a commission to go into the world in peace as they leave, and it remains a place of significance within their memories.

The Reverend Erica Scott
School Chaplain



I loved King William’s College from the start. I made up my mind within an hour of our time there that I wanted my son to attend. You have to come to College to understand what makes it stand out from the rest. It is a place of genuinely caring and friendly people. Another aspect of College we love is its vast international community. Our son has made some great friends and as a result has come to appreciate and respect other cultures and traditions. Our son loves College. He loves the independence to make choices, the easy access he has to his tutors, the opportunity to make his own mistakes and learn from them, but most of all, he loves the fact that expert assistance is always a breath away.
