Welcome to St Christopher's...
If you believe that children should: be curious yet rigorous, be challenged yet have fun, be an individual yet part of a team, and that resilience, initiative, perseverance and respect are important qualities to develop - then come to visit us and see firsthand what we have to offer.
Appointment of new Head for St Christopher's...
We are delighted to announce the appointment of Mrs Emma Nash as the new Head of St Christopher’s. Emma is currently the Head of the Preparatory Department of Manchester High School for Girls. She has been teaching since 1995, specialising in English and the Performing Arts and has worked in a number of schools around the country including Haberdashers Aske’s School for Girls, St Paul’s Cathedral School and Nottingham Girls’ High School, where she was Deputy Head of the Junior School. She has a first class honours degree from Homerton College in Cambridge and active interests in theatre, music, dance and the education of girls in developing countries. She is also a keen runner.
St Christopher’s has a well-deserved reputation for providing a rigorous and child centred education combined with creativity and respect for individuality. We have every confidence that Emma has the experience and character to maintain this ethos, take the school forward and continue to prepare its girls for an increasingly fast changing and challenging world. Emma will take up her position at St Christopher’s in January 2018 and we will be making arrangements for parents to meet her well before then.
The Board of Governors would like to express its profound gratitude to Mrs Christine Lough who is doing an outstanding job as Interim Head. Christine has agreed to continue in that role until Emma joins and to remain available during the Easter term of 2018 to help ensure a smooth transition and to support the 11+ process.
We would also like to thank the wonderful staff of St Christopher’s for their dedication and enthusiasm, for everything they have done and will continue to do.
Chairman of the Board of Governors
