Discover St. Christopher's School

We are a small co-educational pre-preparatory school for children aged between 2½ 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 eight 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.
