High Standards and High Expectations

A warm welcome to our happy and vibrant school where standards are high and staff have the highest expectations for our children. We are delighted to report that in 2017 we finished in the top 4% of schools in the country for English reading and maths. In the 2017 KS2 SAT's 91% of our children achieved the expected grade for reading, writing and maths compared to 61% nationally. For the Higher Standard in reading, writing and maths 34% of our children achieved this compared to 9% nationally. 

We offer a dedicated team of staff who are committed to ensuring that every child achieves their full potential. We strive to develop confident, self-assured, positive young people who love to learn, contribute and achieve.   

We instil a sense of faith in the children encouraging them to reflect on the way they live their life. We encourage them to learn from gospel stories about Jesus, and be giving of themselves to others. We also teach our children to be responsible citizens and to respect other people in our community, their values and cultures.  

Academic performance is something we pride ourselves on, but of equal importance to us is a child's emotional development. We ensure that children have the best approach to work by teaching them about the importance of having a positive mental attitude and resilience.  We encourage them to pursue a healthy lifestyle so that they enjoy life to the full.   

Our rich and exciting curriculum ensures that all children have an opportunity to discover the talents they have. We offer stimulating topics that enable the children to develop the skills they need to be confident, motivated and successful learners. 

The best way to experience our warm and friendly school is by coming to spend time with us. If you are considering St Christopher's as a school for your child, I would urge you to do this.

I look forward to meeting you.
