Welcome to St Christopher's...
If you believe that children should experience a superb education that allows them to be challenged yet have fun, that encourages them to be confident as an individual yet understand how to play their part in a team - and if you think that curiosity, flexible thinking, resilience, initiative, perseverance and respect are important qualities for children to develop – then do come to visit us and experience firsthand what we have to offer.
New head appointed
We are delighted to announce that Ms Sandrine Paillasse has been appointed to be the new head of St Christopher’s from September 2020. Ms Paillasse is currently Deputy Head, Director of Pastoral Care at St Paul’s Girls’ School and has over twenty years of experience in education, including senior positions at various girls’ independent schools, such as Queen’s College and South Hampstead High School, where she was acting head for a term. She writes, “I am delighted to be joining St Christopher's School and I look forward to meeting you very soon. The school has occupied a special place in my heart for quite some time. I am lucky to have met plenty of former pupils in the schools in which I've worked. When I came to visit the school a couple of years ago, I completely fell in love with it, and I hoped then that it would somehow be in my future one day”.
Welcome to our website, which we hope will give you a glimpse of life at St Christopher’s. I hope very much that it will tempt you to visit us and experience our remarkable school for yourself.
At St Christopher’s, we aim to create an environment which we believe gives our girls the best possible opportunity to develop and flourish. It is a dynamic, child-centred place where girls can discover their meaning, identity and purpose alongside rigorous academic preparation for a wide range of senior schools.
I would hope that when you visit, you will find our girls have a natural confidence in themselves and a refreshingly open minded attitude. They are encouraged from the outset to think creatively and independently, make bold decisions and develop a love of learning.
The girls move on from St Christopher’s well prepared and equipped with secure foundations for life at senior school and beyond.
We would be delighted to welcome you to St Christopher’s. Simply contact our Registrar, Jessica Haydon, to book a visit.
For weeks, the Year 6 girls have been working in party teams to create well-researched manifestos, speeches and propaganda for the Green Party, Liberal Democrats, Labour and Conservatives. On Monday, December 2 they did hustings to educate our school community knowing that as strong leaders, their job is to inform. Since then, the air has been buzzing with political discussions at all ages. The girls have shown a true interest in societal concerns and have respectfully begun to form their own opinions and create young political voices. This all culminated in our Mock Election on Thursday, December 5th. A huge congratulations to Year 6 for all their amazing effort and for bringing a real sense of democracy to St Christopher's.
