Our new Chaplain at Kings started in October 2019. Ruth Motion is
part of the pastoral team and spends most of her time in school
listening to individual students, counselling, mentoring and helping
out. Students talk to Ruth for all sorts of different reasons,
including anxiety, exam stress, bereavement, problems with friendship
groups, faith issues and many more. She is easily spotted around the
school in her brightly coloured tie-dye tops.
The Chaplain also organises the visiting speakers who come in to
lead collective worship in the Kings Theatre. These times of
collective worship are mainly led by local clergy, who support in
leading worship and prayer support.
Ruth also leads the church services, which every student attends for
Harvest, Remembrance, Christmas and Easter.
