Our partner church is Holy Trinity Church in Warton village and a part of the Parish of All Souls, North Warwickshire. We have been waiting a while to get a new vicar and are delighted that in May our prayers were answered and Rev. Joanne Dyer joined as our Rector. We are also really fortunate to be supported by Father Phillip at Polesworth Abbey, who has led worships for us, supported us through The Nethersole Trust and advised school staff while their has been no incumbent at the church.
Since May, we have been delighted to welcome Rev. Joanne into school for online collective worships and more recent whole school worships in real life! She has also joined our governing body and our Christian Ethos Committee. We are delighted to be working with her and to have her as a part of our community.

A few words from Rev. Dyer
Hello, I am Reverend Joanne and on the 25th May I became the Rector of the parish of All Souls, which includes your lovely school. You may have seen me out and about exploring with the family and our Dog as we moved into the Vicarage at Austrey a few weeks ago. I am really enjoying getting to know the area and those who live and work here.
I have always felt called to Multi Church rural ministry, which coming from Birmingham may seem odd. But this was really confirmed having spent the last 4 years serving across 8 churches and more villages. Before hearing Gods call to ordination I worked in senior management roles in the NHS for 25 years across Birmingham and Solihull. I am married to Barry who is a great support and have a grown up daughter.
I am really looking forward to living and serving alongside you, coming into school and hearing what the children are learning and seeing them develop in courage, strength and love as they become the amazing humans God created them to be.
If you see me out give me a wave and say hello. I look forward to getting to know you.
