Headteachers Welcome

In 2018 we were congratulated by Nick Gibb, government minister for Standards in Education, for finishing in the top 1% of schools in England for English reading and top 4% in mathematics. We have also been given a 5 star rating by the Manchester Evening News "Real School's Guide 2018."

A warm welcome to St Christopher's RC Primary. Ours is a friendly school serving the families and children of Ashton-under-Lyne, in the diocese of Salford. Standards are always extremely high in the school and staff have the highest expectations for our children. We instill 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 and show kindness everyday.

We teach the children to have the courage to be resilient learners and to think positively. We also teach our children to be responsible citizens and to respect other people in our community, their values and cultures.

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. 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.
