Christ Church School is a Church of England school committed to providing an excellent education for all our pupils and staff both in terms of academic and pastoral excellence at the heart of the community which we serve. Each pupil, irrespective of background, faith, or circumstance, is supported to secure the highest levels of achievement, both in terms of attainment and progress.

Our vision for academic excellence is realised through the recruitment of high calibre staff who share our commitment to providing an education that will inspire them to learn and develop a deep body of knowledge. This enables our pupils to understand the world around them and make informed observations and connections. Curriculum design and coherence will facilitate our vision of academic excellence.

Education at Christ Church School is built on a firm foundation of Christian values with an expectation of high academic standards and pastoral care for all. Our vision for Christ Church School is about the importance of roots. Just as a tree cannot grow to be healthy and strong without good roots, so we believe that children need the right conditions to grow and flourish. In partnership with parents, it is our ambition that all children will be independent, resilient and have a strong sense of moral responsibility; as a community, we value and recognise each individual’s skills and talents.

Our pupils leave Christ Church School ready for secondary school with excellent foundations across a range of subject disciplines, high aspirations, the belief and the self-confidence that they can lead a meaningful and fulfilling life contributing positively to the community.

Christ Church School aims to provide an excellent education, distinctive ethos and an inclusive approach to those of the Christian faith, other faiths and no faith.

Christ Church School serves its pupils, parents and the local community by providing the highest levels of academic excellence and pastoral care, ever mindful of the knowledge and understanding that underpin pupils’ future life chances.

We teach a knowledge and skills rich curriculum within national guidelines designed to inspire pupils to learn and gain an experience of “life in all its fullness”.

At Christ Church school there is a supportive culture of high expectations where we seek to develop emotional resilience and a love of learning so that the pupils thrive intellectually, physically, socially, emotionally, culturally, spiritually and understand how to stay safe.
