We understand that finding the right school for your child is an important decision for families. While this process can be exciting as you explore different options and avenues for your child, we also know that some parents find it challenging, particularly for key entry year groups.
Our admissions team aim to make the process of applying for a place at St Chris as smooth as possible and we are here to answer any questions that you may have. We are proud of the feedback that we receive from prospective families, highlighting our personalised and supportive approach.
The main entry points at St Chris are Nursery, Reception, Year 5, Year 7, Year 9 and Year 12. Occasionally we do have places available in other year groups, and parents wishing to discuss their personal requirements should contact us directly.
Pupils can board with us from the age of 11 (Year 7), and there are systems in place to allow us to offer this provision from the age of 10 in certain circumstances, for example for children of Foreign Office or British Armed Forces employees. Please see the Boarding section of our website for more information, but do contact us to discuss your individual requirements.
As a first step, we encourage families to make an initial enquiry via our online Admissions Portal, where open events and tours can be booked. Where this is not possible, we can organise online meetings.
We also encourage families to view our Virtual Open Day, available throughout the year.
Personal tours of the Nursery, Junior School, Senior School and Sixth Form are always available to book via our online portal, and include a meeting with the most senior member of staff for that area of the school, either in person or – when circumstances dictate – remotely.
We look forward to supporting your family as you embark on your St Chris journey.
