We have hugely valued links with a number of schools associated with the Cathedral community. In particular, the Abbey VA Church of England Primary School and Townsend High School have very close links with the Cathedral. The Abbey Primary has regular input from our clergy, weekly singing assemblies led by clergy, and the whole school attends a weekly act of collective worship in our beautiful Lady Chapel, led by Cathedral clergy. The Youth Chaplain acts as the chaplain for Townsend High School, and the school attends three annual services in the Cathedral.

We are also thrilled to have close links with a wide number of other local schools, and in particular welcome many schools regularly for Christmas carol services.
