The Sanctuary is a multipurpose building provided by the Salvation Army within the grounds of the school. It is used for both the educational and emotional development of the students. Students come to the Sanctuary to attend lunch and afterschool groups that are overseen by Emily, our Salvation Army youth worker. The aim of the groups is to give young people a place where they can feel safe and comfortable to voice any issues they may be facing.
The Sanctuary is also used alongside the RE department. Students are introduced to the Sanctuary and are welcomed to explore what it means to have a faith.
The official opening of The Salvation Army’s building ‘The Sanctuary’ took place on February 6th 2013.
