Discover St. Christopher's School and Nursery

We are a small co-educational pre-preparatory school and nursery for children aged between 2¾ to 7 years. Founded in 1938, we occupy a large residential house in Epsom. Our school was established as a charitable trust in 1965 and is administered by a board of nine amazing governors, many of who are parents of our former pupils.

We aim to create a happy and purposeful environment that provides every child with a broad and challenging education within our caring and secure family context. We promote mutual respect and understanding, co-operation and tolerance of others and place a strong emphasis on high standards of manners and good behaviour.

Inspired by the wonderful  British painter Turner, Year 1 studied his sea scapes looking for his characteristic hallmarks of Power, Energy and Feeling. The children translated these into their own impressionist  pieces blending inks into cotton fabric with amazing effect.
