About the school

St Christopher's School occupies a large Victorian house with a spacious garden. The main building was built in 1886 and houses classrooms for Years 1, 2 and 3 plus an Art room, music practice and singing rooms. It also contains the dining hall and gym.

An extensive rebuilding programme was completed in September 2008 which resulted in 8 new classrooms with sedum roofs and energy efficient heating and lighting systems in place. Computers are available in the classrooms and there is a dedicated Science lab for Year 4 pupils upwards. A third building contains a split-level library and a computer suite.

This summer, a new outdoor rooftop classroom has been constructed, for all year groups to enjoy. Together with the Alice garden, Science garden and fairy garden, this provides the girls with plenty of opportunities to work and play outdoors. An enrichment pod has just been built and provides a dedicated space for one-on-one support and group work.
