The Chapel

The chapel offers a broad, inclusive and all-embracing approach which allows space for all religions.

Situated in the midst of the school’s main buildings the chapel is in so many ways at the heart of Blundell’s life. Except Mondays and Saturdays Blundellians attend daily prayers. The school is affiliated to the Church of England and maintains its Christian ethos in accordance with the wishes of Peter Blundell. Blundellians are invited to consider the values of the Christian faith but in an inclusive, open and warm-hearted spirit.

There are opportunities in chapel for Blundellians to speak to the school on matters that concern them. Pupils address issues of mental health, well-being, tolerance and kindness. Chapel also provides a platform for charitable action and fund-raising activity. It supports the work of the local homeless charity: The Churches’ Housing Action Team.

Major services in the school year are held on Sundays and include a welcome service to new pupils and parents at Harvest-time. A Remembrance Service, Carol Services (alternate years in Exeter Cathedral) and a service in June on Old Blundellian Day. The choir sing and others involve themselves as readers, servers and in leading prayer. The boarders regularly attend services on either a Sunday morning or evening and the Chorister Programme ensures that the music is offered to a high standard, providing a wonderful opportunity to broaden a Blundellian’s musical education.

Chapel begins and ends a Blundellian’s career and the Parting Service of the final day is a moving moment for all concerned. Chapel is a still space in the busy-ness of a Blundellian’s life, a place where the community comes together to celebrate what a shared life means in its fullest sense.
