The Christian Ethos of the School
Choosing a school is a very important time for you and your child. We believe that Saighton School is a special place with a special atmosphere. As a church school Christian Values underpin everything we do as we aim to inspire learners in a nurturing Christian environment.
The school also supports those less fortunate than ourselves and each term selects a different charity to support. Click on the link to find out which charity the school are supporting this term.
St Mary’s in Bruera is in a small rural community about 6 miles south of Chester between Saighton and Aldford. A family service is held at 11am on the first Sunday of every month. Bruera is part of a partnership of three churches that includes Aldford and Waverton.
The school attends local churches and the Cathedral for services and events throughout the year. In addition the whole school enjoys worship together daily.
Our school regularly appears on the Diocese of Chester website and events and achievements regulary feature in the monthly magazine which is circulated to the whole of the diocese. Follow the link to find out more.

Saighton Lord’s Prayer
The infants worked really hard to produce “Saighton School’s Lord’s Prayer” (more easily understood for young children). I was most impressed with the effort they put into this task and feel the results should be shared with you. Maybe some nights, the bedtime prayer could be this one:-
Our Father in heaven
Your name is holy
Help us to do as you ask
So that we all live as you want us to.
Help us not to do bad things
Help us forgive those that do.
We know you are very special
And will love us for ever and ever.
Our School Prayer
We begin every worship with our school prayer. It would be helpful if your child were familiar with this prayer before starting school.
