From its modest beginnings in a villa in 1961, St Christopher’s has grown into a large, internationally renowned, non-profit making school with over 2,300 pupils from more around seventy nations. These children and young people, from three to eighteen years of age, benefit from the excellence, dedication and hard work of our teachers and support staff who form a team dedicated to the creation and maintenance of an environment in which each pupil learns effectively.
In our school, we encourage the notion that personal improvement and development is always possible – no matter how high the current level of achievement and success. In line with this philosophy, our teachers use innovative as well as traditional methods. Over recent years we have implemented practices such as the Building Learning Power framework developed by Prof. Guy Claxton and Assessment for Learning. Latterly we have been using Prof. John Hattie’s evidence-based teaching research to inform our development and have applied Carol Dweck’s insights into the importance of developing a growth mindset in all pupils. Through these initiatives and others, we seek to ensure that our students become “Autonomous Learners”, “Competent Individuals” and “Global Citizens” fully prepared and competent to meet head-on the challenges and vagaries of life in the rapidly changing world we share and who care for the world and its peoples beyond their own sphere of existence and experience.
