I am pleased to welcome you to our website which I hope will provide you with an overview of who we are at St Christophers Academy.
The ethos at St Christophers is firmly built on relationships and trust and on a strong conviction that the individual lies at the heart of the school.
There is here, a tangible sense of shared values strongly held, and this is at the heart of what makes our diverse school vibrant, dynamic and distinctive.
We are not a large school and this, I feel, is our strength. We have a strong sense of community and have been described as a ‘village school within a town’ and it is this description that captures the very essence of our identity.
One of the most pleasing comments from our inspectors acknowledge these truths:
You have firmly established a set of agreed values to which both staff and pupils are expected to adhere. As a result, pupils behave very well in lessons and around the school and there is a sense of community and purpose throughout.
We strive to provide our children, not only with a first rate Primary education that prepares them well for their onward journey, but with fond lasting memories of their Primary years that will linger on.
