WELCOME BY THE HEADMISTRESS
Our non-denominational Christian School was founded in 2003, by parents who wanted to fulfil their God-given responsibility to educate their children, by providing a Bible-based education, that taught God as Creator, knowing that “the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.” (Proverbs 9:10)
The school has grown, and today welcomes children aged 3 to 18. We live in exciting and fast changing times and this means that providing an outstanding, biblically founded and well-rounded education is more important than ever. Of course examination results matter and our students follow a curriculum that can lead to excellent results and early qualifications, giving them access to universities in the UK and overseas. However, this is just one aspect of our education and students are supported to show ambition both within and beyond the classroom.
I believe that our opportunity to support parents in education is a rare privilege, bringing with it a huge responsibility to provide the best all-round education possible as we aim to prepare young people for fulfilled adult life. We take this responsibility extremely seriously. We care about each student and reinforce the Christian family values of the home, building wisdom, fostering respect and encouraging good discipline. Our staff/student ratio is very good, and so we can take time with each child, getting to know them individually and helping them with their work and growth in character. Whilst we aim for academic excellence, we emphasize godly character above all, equipping students for their future role and God’s plan for their life.
School should be fun and happy children are more likely to be successful. We see it as our responsibility to bring out our students’ God-given talents, to broaden their interests and to develop their personal qualities. To do this we aim to foster confidence, perseverance, love and integrity; to enhance communication skills; to embrace creativity; to encourage teamwork; and to promote a Christ-minded and outward-looking mentality so that students are ready for a full and productive Christian life, for the glory of Him.
I hope you share the vision for Christian education and will want to embrace it for your family. I look forward to the opportunity to meet you.
