Christ's School is located near to Richmond Park and is a truly inclusive and comprehensive Anglican school which provides for students of every faith and every background and has attained an excellent reputation within the local community. Its strong Christian ethos permeates all aspects of the school's work and this has had a marked impact in securing excellent outcomes in each student's personal development, based on good relationships at all levels.
Christ’s has excellent CPD opportunities for all staff and can offer PGCE/NQT mentoring support and has a welcoming social community. Staff health and wellbeing are extremely important to us with opportunities to work and socialise together outside of the classroom, enjoying activities such as staff breakfast, yoga, salsa dancing, football and other team sports.
We have extensive grounds which are used by the wider community and we can offer free car parking for all staff. The school is located in Richmond which offers good transport links by tube, train and road.
