International Agents

St Chris works closely with a number of international education agents as partners, and we welcome applications to work with new agents.

Please note we have an exclusive arrangement with one agent in China, so are unable to accept students from China via other educational agents.

In order to discuss a partnership with St Christopher School please contact Kate Allan, Registrar on +1462 650 947 or email
