Pupils begin their journey to the senior school in Years 7 & 8 , based in Alway House and then progress fully into the Senior School at Year 9. At Christ College we understand that this year is a time of huge change for children. It is a big step from prep school to a senior school and also a time of adolescent change – physically, emotionally, socially and intellectually.
At Christ College we offer a varied curriculum, both inside and outside the classroom, which stretches and challenges each young person to make learning even more inspiring and involving. Our academic curriculum offers a wide range of subjects, all tailored to each pupil’s learning ability.
The academic programme is combined with an outstanding sport and co-curricular programme and a focus on learning in the outdoors – making the most of the Brecon Beacons National Park on our doorstep.
There are two senior boys’ boarding houses, School House and Orchard House, and two senior girls’ boarding house, Donaldsons House and DeWinton House. St Davids, is our mixed senior day house. The houses have housemasters and housemistresses who oversee every aspect of a child’s wellbeing and academic progress.
