Welcome to St Christopher’s School and Nursery

We are committed to giving every St Christopher’s pupil the best possible start to their education and development and supporting our families through their child’s early years of education.

We are specialists in the education and support of 2¾ to 7 year olds. Our happy, creative and stimulating Nursery and Pre-Prep was judged to be excellent in all areas by The Independent Schools’ Inspectorate, who described it as giving our pupils “the best possible start to their education”.

We are passionate about supporting your child to be happy, curious and excited about learning. We provide a comprehensive and engaging curriculum alongside outstanding opportunities in music, drama, art, sport and languages with specialist teachers in each of these areas to ensure your child has the confidence and support to achieve.

We believe our pupils should be engaged in the world around them and develop the skills and desire to get involved. All pupils benefit from an exciting range of school trips, inspirational guest speakers and the opportunity to support local, national and international charities and initiatives. We ensure pupils are connected to both the natural world through our Woodlands School initiative and the on-line world by having IT securely embedded in the curriculum.

St Christopher’s is a truly independent school with excellent results ensuring that our children are much sought after by their next school as our pupils have a reputation for being confident all-rounders as well as enjoying academic success. You don’t know what type of child you have at 2¾ years old but by 7 you do and we can gently guide you to the school that is the best possible fit for the next chapter of your child’s education.

Our school is full of energy designed for young children to organically grow and succeed. Above all it is a place filled with happiness. “The best possible start”..? Come and find out why. I look forward to showing you around.
