Collective worship at the West Bridgford School is provided by a peer-led system.

By encouraging delivery of collective worship from older students in the form of drama, and with the full support of a peer mentoring system, the school ensures that pupils receive a valuable moral education relevant to their own experiences.

Due to confines of space, each year group can only come together once a week where the theme for the week is introduced, and then expanded upon in form tutor groups over the next four days.

As a secular school, the values introduced in collective worship are not religious in nature, but provide lessons on morality that are based on the character of Christian values.

Headteacher and Ofsted Inspector Robert McDonough is confident that the school's provision complies fully with the law.
