At St Christopher’s School , we pride ourselves on being an Independent Preparatory School. We are a member of ISA (the Independent Schools Association) and our last Regulatory Compliance Inspection (2016) found us to be compliant in all areas of schools regulations. This is the highest standard of achievement for school regulations and is testament to our teachers and our organisation. Furthermore, St Christopher’s has been serving the local community for nearly 90 years and September 2018 will mark our 90th anniversary.
As an independent Preparatory school, our aim is to prepare each student for the opportunities and challenges to be faced in some of the best Secondary schools in London, including Independent and Grammar schools. We also need to equip our students with the social skills and values they will need in these future high-performing Secondary schools. These skills include:
- Social empathy
- Compromise and teamwork
- Calculated risk taking
- Organisation and self discipline
- Creativity and readiness to adapt
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.
