Senior School

The Senior School begins at Year 7 and continues to Year 11, crucial years in the journey from childhood to adulthood, with children progressing on to the St Chris Sixth Form.

Rewarding experience

Senior School is a journey to independence, and the transition is an exciting time.

For some, it can also be a little bit daunting, but at St Chris we have a team of highly skilled and experienced teachers ready to help and ensure that it is an enjoyable, successful and rewarding experience for everyone.

We provide a close-knit, supportive environment that creates a rich and rewarding educational experience. All within the School are called by their first names and there is no uniform. This helps to build relationships based on trust, mutual respect and co-operation.

All-round achievement

The Senior School produces excellent results at GCSE, together with a wide range of opportunities to develop as an individual.

We are determined that pupils should choose courses that appeal to them; that they will do well in and that will enable them to move forward in the way that they would like to.

Good work habits and routines developed by students early in their Senior School life stay with them, and help pupils to flourish and make the most of their time at St Chris all the way to Sixth Form and beyond.

Extracurricular activities

Pupils are strongly encouraged to get involved in activities outside of the classroom in order to develop their interests, broaden their horizons and tackle new challenges.

There are many opportunities during the school week and at weekends to take part in extracurricular activities.

Companies and Advisers

Each pupil is placed in a small Company group of boys and girls, with an Adviser who has responsibility for maintaining an overview of their wellbeing and general progress at school.

The Adviser will quickly get to know your child should be your first point of contact should you have any queries or concerns.

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.
