Religion

The Christian Faith forms the basis of Hamilton Preparatory School’s ethos and will be the foundation for school assemblies. At Hamilton we celebrate religious events such as Easter and Christmas. In addition, our end-of year concert may be based on a religious theme.
However, we welcome and respect pupils of all denominations and religions and value the variety of languages and cultures that will be represented throughout our school. Children are not forced to participate in Christian religious celebrations.
