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 admissions@stchris.co.uk

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 as an enforced period of social isolation takes place;
  • 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.

We have a small number of places still available for September 2020, and will be able to answer any questions you may have about the school and how to apply, set up virtual meetings with key teachers and to send you a virtual tour of the site while the School is closed.
