Why choose us?

Christ’s College provides unique and exceptional opportunities for all pupils, raising their aspirations, encouraging their talents, supporting their ambitions and developing their confidence. We believe that this is the dream of every parent, the desire of every community and the right of all young people, regardless of their ability or background.

We are a school with a distinctive Christian character but our community is made up of students, staff and parents who hold many different religious and ideological positions and unite around our core values. Our school is a school where everyone is welcome. The Christian gospel is a message of hope, redemption and transformation that makes a difference to how we see ourselves and how we live.

Christ’s College is a rapidly improving school led by dedicated and ambitious leaders. We are committed to providing the best possible education for your child in significantly improving facilities.

We are continually improving our standards in all areas of school life to ensure that pupils leave our school equipped to succeed in the next steps in their education and employment. We are dedicated to the development of your child, academically, socially and spiritually. We aim to develop the whole pupil so that they have a desire to succeed, an ability to respect other, be resilient, have a strong work ethic and be tenacious to succeed. We aim to ensure that they develop their spirituality, know that they are unique and have a contribution to make.

Our pupils achieve well at GCSE and the school has sustained positive progress for its pupils in the last few years. 

Because the school is small (we can admit 75 pupils into year 7), all our pupils are known by staff and pupils feel that they are known, valued and understood. As a smaller than average sized secondary school, we can support pupils incredibly well to enable them to succeed and thrive. Staff and pupils are proud of the school and appreciate the strong community feel.

We actively encourage your involvement and seek to support your guiding role in your child’s life. As a school, we have a desire to work with parents to ensure your child receives the best possible education and achieves their personal best.

Motivated Students
We encourage children to work hard and, in return, they are recognised and rewarded throughout their time with us. Similarly, we are keen to have well behaved students who will work well together, supporting each other and enjoying school in a safe and positive environment.

Expanding Horizons
The academy is committed to the all-round development of your child’s talents and interests. The extracurricular programme will increasingly be varied and exciting, challenging and stretching, allowing children the chance to gain new experiences or deepen existing skills outside of the classroom.

Developing Physically

Our Christian values pervade all we do. Our community is characterised by the following values:

Honourable Purpose
We aim to be positive in everything, doing what is good and aiming to benefit others as well as ourselves.

Humility
We seek to do our personal best without bragging and to encourage others to achieve their best without being critical or jealous of their efforts.

Compassion
We care for those who are in difficulty and who are hurting, recognising that the world does not exists for us alone.

Integrity
We can be trusted to be honest and truthful, to say what we mean and to do what we say.

Accountability
We recognise that having the freedom to express ourselves means we must also accept responsibility for our words, thoughts and actions.

Courage
We aim to do what is right, whatever the cost; we stand up for the weak, whatever the danger; we face our fears and find ways of defeating them.

Determination
We know that hard work and the refusal to give up are essential if we are to achieve anything worthwhile.
