SCALA seeks to work with all types of secondary school and is keen to develop links with primary and preparatory schools.

Types of School

Member schools of SCALA come from all areas of educational provision within Britain. The majority of schools are from the independent sector and reflect Anglican, Roman Catholic, Methodist and other denominational traditions. SCALA also has increasing numbers of members from maintained church schools and academies.

Member schools are both day and boarding, single sex and coeducational, large and small. Chaplains may be full or part-time, employed or voluntary, teachers or local clergy, lay or ordained. The styles of chaplaincy also varies considerably.
