As parents we have been delighted with the wonderful, balanced education that the School provides. Our son is developing into a confident, polite and enthusiastic boy, which must reflect the School's values"

A typical week at the Junior School
The school week at the Junior School is busy but well-balanced. A typical school day begins with assembly for the whole school.
This is an important time for all students, day and boarding, as we start the day together. It is also a time for announcements about the day ahead.
On Fridays students attend a weekly service at St Christopher's, which we encourage parents and guardians to attend.
Following morning classroom learning, pupils enjoy time together outside the classroom, in the extensive school grounds and in evening activities.
At weekends students follow a full programme of activities.
Year 8 pupils have Saturday morning lessons which form a useful transition to the Senior School, as well as allowing greater breadth of the curriculum.
