in secondary schools

The Lighthouse Project currently works in 4 Secondary Schools, including regular assemblies, lunch clubs and lessons. We also offer stand-alone events which can fit into the schools curriculum.


Assemblies are approx. 15 minutes long and are designed to fit into your school’s assembly slot. They are interactive and focus on a relevant issue that young people are facing. The assemblies have a practical application from the Bible and the Christian faith.


Lunch clubs are once a week and include an informal time of playing games, making crafts and an opportunity for young people to make new friends. The final 10-15 minutes is focused on a particular issue which the students might be facing, e.g. bullying or peer pressure. These issues are discussed from a Christian perspective with interactive activities to allow the students to reflect upon the subject. We currently have a lunch club running at Ifield Community College, The Gatwick School and Holy Trinity!


Esteem is a comprehensive relationships and sex education (RSE) programme which supports young people in making wise and healthy choices.
We currerently present regular Esteem lessons at Ifiend Community College.


Eliv8 groups usually run for a term and take place once a week. These groups are for young people who are struggling to engage and need a bit of extra support. These sessions cover subjects such as effective communication and managing conflict. They are interactive and are based on Christian values and teaching.
We have been running ‘Eliv8’ at Holy Trinity and are looking forward to being able to offer this to more secondary schools in the future.


Prayer Spaces in schools enable young people, of all faiths and none, to explore questions about life and spirituality. It offers a safe space where students can learn skills of personal reflection and allows them to draw their own conclusion from the experience. A Prayer Space is normally set up in a classroom sized area and can be used as part of the RE curriculum. It can be set up for a few days or a week.
We are currently planning one for students at Holy Trinity School! This be avaliable throughout the exam period and will focus on managing stress.


Easter and Christmas Explored offer children an interactive experience as they walk through the Easter or Christmas story. This could be used as part of the RE curriculum or as an extra end of term treat!
