Our Chaplain

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.
