From the Head
Welcome to our website, which I hope provides you with a sense of how the School’s Mission to Learn, Share and Care encapsulates the importance of a safe, fun and positive learning environment, ensuring your child is nurtured, engaged and inspired in their learning journey throughout their time at St Christopher’s.
There is a palpable sense of community at St Christopher’s, and visitors often comment on the warm and happy atmosphere, and the family feel that they notice around the school. Our holistic approach to education means that we place great importance upon the intellectual, physical, social and spiritual development of each child, and our highly qualified, talented and dedicated teaching staff encourage children to engage as active learners, to take increasing ownership of their studies and develop their perseverance, resilience, adaptability, creativity, curiosity and collaboration, so that each child flourishes academically and emotionally.
We believe that a happy child is a child who is ready and excited to learn and learning is at the heart of everything we do. St Christopher’s is known for its small class sizes and academic excellence and with this foundation, every child at St Christopher’s has the best possible opportunity to achieve success, whether it be in the classroom, in the performing arts, the sports field or elsewhere.
Our children are well prepared and equipped for the 11+examinations in Year Six and we guide our families through their journey with us towards their next secondary school. These are chosen carefully and in partnership with parents. We aim to match a child’s academic ability, their character and personality to the most suitable future school.
Our most recent Independent Schools Inspection Report (ISI) in May 2019 identified the School to be excellent in all areas, an external appraisal of our fantastic community. However to truly understand why children love St Christopher’s, come and pay us a visit and see how every child learns, shares and cares.
