Church aided or controlled schools have been a very significant part of the landscape of general education in the UK since the 19th century. But in a world where direct expression of faith is increasingly treated with suspicion is there a place for them in today’s society? No matter how tentatively it may be expressed the ethos of a church school is, inevitably to proclaim Christ in its work and example. Can this survive our secular world?
Canon Dr Ann Holt OBE has spent all her working life in education, including working at the Department for Education (DfE) and is currently chair of the Bristol Diocese Board of Education. She has been a governor of several schools, primary, secondary and nursery and she has twice been chair of governors. She has been a national trainer and consultant to Local Education Authorities, the Department for Education, and independent schools. She was awarded her OBE for services to education in 2004 and is presently Director of Education for the Diocese of Chichester.
We look forward to hearing from her how the church can continue Doing Truth in schools in the UK.Share:
