What says..

Parents are firmly down to earth, not a whiff of glitz. Very few nannies or au pairs at the school gates. The children are modest, eloquent and courteous. Doors were held open and some older children unselfconsciously stood up as we entered. At every turn, we saw lively, inspiring teaching – all underpinned by kindness, exemplifying school values. Parents describe the teachers as ‘exceptional’ and ‘wise’. ‘They push enough without being pushy,’ said one...

What The Good Schools Guide says


Since 2018, Alastair Gloag, previously head of Rishworth School, Yorkshire for six years.

Special Education Needs

At Saint Christina’s School we aim to identify and foster each child’s natural aptitude. Through a system of consultations with the child, parent-teacher meetings and regular assessments, we monitor progress and celebrate achievements. When this monitoring and assessment identifies children experiencing difficulty in specific areas of the curriculum, we establish an individual support programme. Learning support may be in the form of small group support in class, or one-to-one or small group tuition with specialist learning support teachers. If there are ongoing concerns, we are willing to advise on further courses of action. Children may be referred to the appropriate professionals for further support and intervention, such as educational psychologists, speech and language therapists or occupational therapists.
