A strong record of success

Academic

Central to the school’s aims is the promotion of academic excellence, and we take pride in our very strong record of success at GCSE and A level.

We are particularly strong in the core subjects of Mathematics, Humanities and the Sciences, as well as in the Creative Arts.

The Christ College curriculum is carefully structured to provide a balance of subjects and to allow individuals to play to their academic strengths. The emphasis is on first class teaching, provided in well-resourced departments and with small class sizes, allowing plenty of individual attention for pupils.

“The range of subjects offered in such a small institution amazes one!”

The Good Schools Guide

Homework (‘prep’) in houses ensures that academic disciplines are learned right from the start, and help is available for those who need it. Each pupil has an individual tutor, who keeps a close eye on academic progress and on the suitability of the pupil’s programme, and keeps in close touch with parents.

There is an academic club or society to suit every enthusiasm and gift, with scholars’ groups for the most able pupils and a small but highly effective Learning Support Centre for those in need of academic support.
