In keeping with our Mission Statement: ‘To provide education which inspires students to strive for excellence in all areas of life for the glory of God and the service of others,’ the Middle College has a strong service ethic.


Service does not always have to be about big issues; it can be acts of kindness, consideration and compassion in the classroom, in the playground, on the sports field, or at home. It is these little acts of service that build a foundation for moral reasoning later in life. Service learning allows our students to discover ‘their best selves’ and develop lifelong habits. 


As our students progress through the College, service opportunities at both school and community level abound. Students are encouraged to become involved with projects such as World Vision’s 40 Hour Famine, to contribute to food, shoe, clothing and stationery ‘banks’ that provide for those in the wider community who are less fortunate, and to understand the purpose and end result of Chapel offerings. 

Our Middle School students have opportunities as a tutor group to visit local primary schools once a term at lunchtime to help out and during our end of year Year 9 Challenge Week, students are actively involved in service.

These students enter their service opportunities sometimes not knowing what to expect, but leave empowered by the emotional satisfaction of ‘a job well done.’ 

To stay faithful to our Mission Statement, we will continue to provide opportunities for pupils to put service into action; for service to become an intrinsic part of every Saint Kentigern students’ outlook on life - to live The Saint Kentigern Way.
