Christ Church is Voluntary Aided within the Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. It is a relatively small school, one form entry with 210 children. Classes are from Reception to Year 6 and we teach children from the age of 4 to 11. There are thirty children in each class. Places in the school are much sought after and we therefore have a long waiting list for most classes.
The school is situated in a beautiful location in the heart of Chelsea near the Embankment. We are housed over three sites with classes split either side of Robinson Street and our playground is across the road on a site in Christ Church Street. We are a short walk from the Chelsea Physic Garden, the Royal Hospital, the South Kensington museums and the Chelsea Sports Centre. Children that attend Christ Church are from a wide range of backgrounds and live mainly in Battersea and Chelsea. The school is extremely inclusive and welcomes children with a wide range of abilities with a range of aptitudes.
Our emphasis is on providing a broad and varied curriculum that meets the needs of all children. A love of learning is what we aim to instil in our children along with strong Christian values. We have specialist Music and Physical Education teachers which really impacts on the quality of teaching in these areas. We have a really dedicated team of teachers and teaching assistants who are well trained and talented. Our links with the wider community serves to enrich and enliven the learning curriculum that we offer.
We enjoy excellent relationships with our clergy who really contribute positively to the life of the school. Christ Church is the closest of our two parish churches and we visit it regularly for assemblies, special services and teaching purposes.
We aim to establish excellent relationships between the children’s home and school. Parents, family and friends are most welcome at the school and contribute greatly to the positive and happy learning environment.
