Choosing the right secondary school for your daughter or son is a vitally important decision. We recognise the crucial role played by you as parents in the education of your children. You want them to be happy and successful so you need to feel confident that we will provide the environment where this will happen.
Our community is founded on the Christian values of love, justice and peace, and they underpin everything that we do at Christ's. We are committed to the pursuit of excellence in all that we do and if you entrust your child to us you will see that we work tirelessly to achieve this.
If you are considering applying for a place for your child here at Christ's you are most welcome to come and see us at work. Whilst there are formally planned Open Evenings, every day is Open Day so please make an appointment to come and see us at any time. I look forward to meeting you.
Christ's is a Church of England comprehensive school for 600 young people aged between 11 and 16. It is situated on an enviable site adjacent to Richmond Park in Richmond upon Thames in South West London. We have excellent links with our feeder primary schools and the local community. We are proud to be a faith school and welcome students from Christian and other religious backgrounds. Our admissions policy is included at the back of this prospectus.
All members of our community are encouraged to learn and achieve. We recognise and celebrate success wherever we can. We believe that we all have talent and that it is our responsibility to identify, nurture and develop that talent to the best of our abilities with the help, guidance and support of others.
As parents and carers you will be key partners to the success we achieve with our students.
Christ's School has a lively, enthusiastic PTA but we always need new input! Coming along to meetings and helping out at PTA-organised events is an excellent way to support the school, the staff and your child. Meetings are held on the second Monday of each half term – they are informal and informative and any parent or carer who wants to come along to one or all of the meetings is very welcome.
As of 1.30pm Sunday 20th January it is our intention to conduct a normal school day tomorrow, Monday 21st January.
Main roads are clear and public transport is operating.
The forecast for tomorrow indicates that it will be very cold but heavy snow is not anticipated.
Pupils will need to dress appropriately. If the playgrounds are icy pupils will remain indoors at break and lunch time.
There will be a further update if there is any change to these plans.
