Welcome to St Christopher School

St Christopher School is an atypical independent day and boarding school located in Letchworth Garden City just 30 minutes from Cambridge and central London.

At St Chris we have high expectations of all within the School. We expect excellent behaviour and maximum effort and that is what we get from our students. We also expect everyone to work together, to enjoy their time at School and have fun working hard.

When the School was founded in 1915 the Daily Herald reported that the School was based

"not on the sameness of children, their conformity to type,

but on their differences."

This concept of treating children as individuals was revolutionary at the time and continues to be one of the distinctive characteristics of a St. Chris education.  We do things differently because they work. 

We allow children to decide what they wear to school because it teaches them to be self-reliant and to make informed choices.  Everyone is called by their first names (pupils and teaching staff alike) because we have found that this promotes better relationships between children and teachers, based on mutual trust. 

Parents also tell us that the use of first names makes conversations with teachers easier and more productive.  

The Sixth Form at St Chris offers a wide range of subjects at A-level and a fantastic range of extra-curricular opportunities. Together these provide our students with the results and skills they need to thrive in the modern world.
