Who will it suit?

Particularly appropriate for artistic, self-starters with strong academic interests. It is also well suited to Vegetarians as the school ONLY serves vegetarian food options. School size: 360, but strong friendships across all ages and small class sizes in Sixth Form. Several adventurous trips on offer – including to Rajasthan and Europe for Language, History and Skiing trips.  Children are valued for what they can offer – not just a place for high flyers.

Outcomes

Nearly all students go on to top universities, art, music or drama colleges. Pupils are often winners of national design-type awards. Considerable care goes into finding the right ‘next-step’ for all leavers.

Settling-In

School  is set to launch a special international study centre programme offering a pre-A Level year, with the focus on improving English, prior to a 2-year A-level programme. Shorter lengths may be possible. Boarding houses are very homely and in beautiful surroundings. The sense of community is strong and international students are warmly welcomed.  An already impressive sixth-form centre is being furthered developed to assist in creating the right environment for study.

ASIS View

St Chris, a school inspired 100 years ago by the Theosophical Society, is looking for sixth form students happy with an informal but well structured academic and creative programme of study. No ‘traditional’ formality exists – pupils and teachers are all on first name terms – but there is a very clear study programme to ensure excellent academic results and some quite outstanding creative achievements. Youngsters are confident and clearly at ease with themselves.  The ethos of accepting and valuing all nationalities, cultures and creeds is at the heart of daily school life, creating a vibrant and happy community.
