St Christopher’s achieved the highest judgement of ‘excellent’ in all areas of the Educational Quality Inspection. Inspectors were able to see for themselves the inspiring learning environment at St Christopher’s and experience the supportive, family feel of the school, both of which positively contribute to our pupils’ high levels of achievement.
