@ sheepcat: Is this a public school? If so, I don't understand how religious views can be taught in a public school. If it is a private shool, then can't the school invite anyone they want to speak with the students? I'm confused

Yes it is a normal state school, it is worth noting that collective worship is compulsory in schools in England and Wales, see below for a link to e petition to challenge this in parliament.

I have signed the Welsh petition as I think this is a bit Victorian but I have far more of an issue with the play and this type of Brand marketing.
