A quick word of caution before you book on especially if you are in year 10 - theASCENT is designed for those who want to go deeper in their faith and because of this it isn't for everyone. If you're unsure as to whether you are ready to take part just drop us an email or alternatively wait one more year until you are in year 11 before booking on!

If you're new to theASCENT on the 2022/2023 academic year, please be advised that your weekly online meeting or PoD will take place on Mondays at 7.30pm during term time. Since PoD is an important part of the process, we ask prospective participants to make sure their diary allows for such a commitment.
