Covid-19 Information

Due to the containment measures associated with the COVID-19 outbreak, St Chris is currently physically closed for mainstream schooling. We continue to operate remotely to offer virtual learning for all of our pupils and our top priorities are to:

  • Continue to support and move forward the learning goals of each class or subject;
  • Support our pupils pastorally;
  • Support families as they navigate challenges that arise with work schedules and childcare.

Current Parents

Full details of our remote learning arrangements and resources, pastoral care and safeguarding information have been emailed to parents. Please visit our parent portal for updated information. Staff contact details can be found by clicking here.

If you are a prospective family looking for a school for your child, our Admissions Office is open and members of our Admissions Team are available to talk to. They can answer any questions you may have about the school and how to apply, set up virtual meetings with key teachers and can send you a video tour of the site while the School is closed.

As well as offering video tours, we are also organising a small number of socially distanced tours of the School to those families looking for places for September 2020. Please get in touch if you would like to find out more.
