Bishop Stopford's School has had three Chaplains since 1967: James Lowry, the Revd. Stephen Taylor, and since May 2006 Father Antony Homer. All have chosen to take the salutation "father".
As well as presiding over school religious occasions, the Chaplain coordinates the pastoral side of the school, having frequent contact with the Senior Six, Heads of House and the Senior Leadership team of the School.
Fr Antony Homer left in February 2011 to join the Ordinariate within the Roman Catholic Church and so a Lay Chaplain has been appointed, Jonathan Seabrook, who has now assumed the role of Assistant Headteacher with responsibility for Religion and Worship and continues as Head of Divinity.

Famous quotes containing the word chaplain:
“When some one remarked that, with the addition of a chaplain, it would have been a perfect Cromwellian troop, he observed that he would have been glad to add a chaplain to the list, if he could have found one who could fill that office worthily. It is easy enough to find one for the United States Army. I believe that he had prayers in his camp morning and evening, nevertheless.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“Though I had not come a-hunting, and felt some compunctions about accompanying the hunters, I wished to see a moose near at hand, and was not sorry to learn how the Indian managed to kill one. I went as reporter or chaplain to the hunters,and the chaplain has been known to carry a gun himself.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“A chaplain is the minister of the Prince of Peace serving the host of the God of WarMars. As such, he is as incongruous as a musket would be on the altar at Christmas. Why, then, is he there? Because he indirectly subserves the purpose attested by the cannon; because too he lends the sanction of the religion of the meek to that which practically is the abrogation of everything but brute Force.”
—Herman Melville (18191891)
