The school is closely linked with the parish church of Holy Trinity, and the relationship between the church and the school is maintained by the presence of the vicar on the governing body, and the weekly involvement of the  vicar in assemblies and in other school activities. The children also make regular visits to church. In addition our school works closely with the London Diocesan Board for Schools (LDBS).
