Success for The Christian School Takeley students at Bishop’s Stortford Pupil Voice Network Conference

The ethos of students at The Christian School Takeley (TCST) impressed judges at the Bishop’s Stortford Pupil Voice Network Conference.

Children at the small independent school founded in 1989 told the forum hosted by Bishop’s Stortford College that they are part of a “community of faith, hope and love in action”.

The annual conference aims to give pupils a voice and help them develop an interest in service and politics.

The TCST pupils joined peers from the College, The Bishop’s Stortford High School, St Michael’s CofE, Thorley Hill and Thorn Grove primaries in Bishop’s Stortford and Elsenham Primary School for the event.

Each cohort talked about serving their community in the past 12 months as part of the PVN conference challenge.

A spokesman for TCST said: “Our pupils spoke eloquently about their faith and the call to service.

“Included in our community work were our dyslexia information evenings, our efforts to reduce food, crisp packet and battery waste, our tree-planting and wood chip recycling projects, the support we give to the Takeley Community Café and how we welcome members of the community at our services, concerts and musical performances.

“We are absolutely thrilled to have been recognised for this work as the overall winners for 2024.

“We aim to enable TCST pupils to know what it means to be a person of service and love, and we’re extremely proud our pupils have demonstrated this to the wider community.”
