What The Good Schools Guide says..
The large play area has been landscaped to accommodate a sports pitch, gardening plots, a pergola and free play areas. ‘I would like a bit more playtime,’ sighed one child, and we were not surprised. Several parents commented how well maintained the buildings were, and one ventured, ‘environment helps behaviour’. The charming neighbourhood is reminiscent of a scene from Mary Poppins; all it lacks is…
What the school says...
Christ Church is a very happy and successful school. Our school is relatively small, which means that it is a very safe and caring environment where everybody knows your name and something about you.
We believe in teaching that inspires children to love learning and life. We aim to create an inclusive environment where being different but belonging together is key to our ethos. We dedicate ourselves to raising achievement for every child in our school.
We aim to instil qualities of forgiveness, empathy and respect in all of our children. All children have their own strengths, gifts and talents and we feel these should be capitalised on so that children have positive self esteem and achieve the very best that they can.
Creating and maintaining a close relationship between home and school is vital to a child being successful in their learning and we ask parents to be very supportive of our work as they are the primary educators. ...Read more

Since 2009, Mrs Avis Hawkins, BSc NPQH (40s). Read psychology at Royal Holloway with a view to becoming an educational psychologist, but got the teaching bug while training at the Institute of Education. Started her career in a state primary in Lewisham, then opted for a school in special measures (now 'inadequate' rating) for the challenge; ‘That made me the teacher I am’. Appointed deputy at Christ Church in 2000 and was the natural choice to step into the role when previous head retired.
Attractive, energetic and disarmingly open, she has both children and parents on her side; ‘So personable and friendly,’ said one. Another added, ‘Not the kind of head who just sits in their office’, though with the white and grey Danish-look furniture, complete with functional teaching table...
