Why is St Luke’s a ‘Church’ School?

St Luke’s School was originally built in 1843 at the instigation of William Scoresby the vicar of Bradford Parish Church (now the Cathedral). Nowadays St Luke’s school is controlled by the Local Authority but is still closely connected to St Luke’s Church. It is called a ‘Church of England Voluntary Controlled’ School.

How is our Church School different?
  • Worship is mainly of a Christian nature with prayers and the singing of hymns forming a large part of it.
  • Children will have an opportunity to understand and explore world religions and festivals, but Religious Education topics will always explore the Christian viewpoint first. 
  • The children will be taught of Christ’s love for them and God’s forgiveness through Christ.
  • The children will attend a church service on Tuesday mornings between 9 and 9.30. Parents/carers are most welcome to join us for this service.
  • Daily prayers are said in class.
