Welcome to St. Christopher's, a vibrant and successful co-educational IAPS Prep School in the heart of Hove. The recent news pages give but a glimpse of the rich and varied opportunities the children enjoy.
We pride ourselves most on four things:
- A culture of kindness, courtesy and curiosity breeds confidence and is at the heart of all that we do.
- A disciplined, caring environment characterised by the support given to young children by older ones
- Children's insatiable thirst for knowledge is embraced by dedicated, passionate teachers who aim to get the best from every child
- The development of the individual child is central to our mission, and we rejoice in the belief that every child can and will excel, be it in the classroom, on the Sports' Field, on stage or in one of the many activities we provide
We are a traditional school with a modern outlook, illustrated by our innovative use of IT learning systems, and the opportunity for every child to learn Mandarin. Boys and girls have the chance to play sport together as well as by gender and our children find new talents through a programme providing a range of activities from Drama to Fencing. Many and varied are the opportunities that St Christopher's has to offer but don't take my word for it or reckon on this website giving you anything but the briefest of snapshots into what the school can do for your child: call up and come and see us; meet with me, teachers and pupils; take a tour of the school with one of our current pupils and get a feel for our priorities.
I very much look forward to seeing you.
