As part of its Special Character, Craighead Diocesan School maintains its foundation in Christian values. Traditionally enriched by Christian principles and observances, Craighead fosters integrity, service, charity, tolerance and commitment.
In times of increasing change and complexity it is vital that young people have firm foundations in their search for values and attitudes.
In guiding the spiritual life of the school, our Chaplain leads services every morning, before the working day begins. The school follows the broad ethos of Anglicanism, whilst also recognising the multi- denominational environment that exists in the community.
The School Chapel, dedicated in 1955, was the vision of Mary Oakeley, Headmistress from 1940 to 1955. A short worship service is conducted at the beginning of each school day and a Sunday evening service is held at the beginning and end of each term.

Religious Education classes give our students time to broaden their education to understand ourselves and neighbours, both in the local community and in the world.
Community life at the school is enriched and strengthened by Craighead’s Special Character.
