What do we do differently to other prep schools in Wembley?
The ISI Inspection Report in May 2019 found us to be excellent and outstanding in all areas of the school.
It is easy to see why. Our prep school has small classes of 14 children, on average. We have excellent teachers, including subject specialists and a teacher-pupil ratio which is rarely found in large Independent Preps and state primary schools in Wembley.
We have an outstanding track record of achievements at 11+ exams, with half of our pupils getting offers of places at Grammar Schools or gaining Scholarships in 2023. Furthermore, we challenge our pupils with an advanced curriculum which allows pupils to perform far in advance of age-related expectations. However, it is the excellence in our pupils’ personal development which makes us better than the large Independent Schools in the North London area.
We prepare our students with the social skills and values they will need in their future senior schools. These values include:
These are values and aptitudes that become hard wired by adulthood and give our students the ability to succeed in life.
That’s our secret. We don’t only want to be measured by our academic success for its own sake. At St Christopher’s School, we aim to develop the foundations and skills for all the eventualities and opportunities life will bring.
