Welcome to our two new gap students Pauline and Helen who have joined St Chris this year.
Based in the boarding house,  during the school day Pauline will be supporting the Music Department and the Junior School, and Helen will be supporting the Modern Foreign Languages Department.
They’ve both written a short introduction to themselves below!


Hey there, my name is Helen and I live in Munich, Germany with my family and my two cats. Last year I completed my Abitur which equals the British A-Levels. I always dreamed about staying abroad for a longer period of time after graduation to gain a new perspective and to get to know a different culture.

This seemed impossible when the worldwide pandemic started, but now I am even more happy that my GAP year is happening. In my free time I love to cook and bake. I also really enjoy playing the piano as well.

In Munich, I used to go to the ballet studio to dance three times a week.

My last visit in England was back in Summer 2016 where my family and I travelled along the southern coast.

I am looking forward to spending the next 10 months at St. Chris.


Hi everyone, my name is Pauline.
I’m 19 Years old and I’m the new GAP Student at St Chris. I‘m going to help in the Music Department and the Junior School.
At home I loved to play Tennis. I’ve been in a Tennis Club for the last 7 Years. I graduated this year in Germany and now want to experience something really different other than just learning from books like the past 13 years.
I want to improve my English and do something practical, I think St Chris will be a good place for me to achieve that and I hope Covid-19 will not stop me from having a good experience in a foreign country!
