Overview

Christ Church is a Church of England Primary School within the borough of Kingston. We admit 60 children each year into reception (two classes) and 52 into nursery (26 in the morning and 26 in the afternoon). 

We are a split site school. The infants are located on Lime Grove and the juniors in Elm Road. This means that each site feels intimate and caring and yet we also benefit from a large staff with a wide range of expertise. Together our two departments provide a rich, creative and challenging primary curriculum which is tailor-made to the different ages of our children.

Key Priorities 2015/16

To enhance the quality of children’s learning through a new CREATIVE curriculum:  we will embed and refine our plans for our curriculum; with a particular focus on WOW starts, practical design and technology and creative home learning. We will develop plans for outdoor learning, starting with Reception and the Infant site playground.

To promote a cohesive COMMUNITY: We will  celebrate role models from a range of cultural backgrounds, established a credit union for our children, with support from St John’s church (Christians against Poverty), celebrated Christ Church’s and our own 150th anniversary, sponsored two children in Kibera slums in Kenya.

To NURTURE children’s well being by creation of life teams: This year we will introduce an innovative new  project ‘Let’s Lead at Christ Church’ in order to promote a sense of community and responsibility accompanied by the reintroduction of systematic circle times.  We will also seek expert guidance through the extended course ‘Children’s Mental Health Training for schools’ and through additional educational psychologist time

To continue to MAXIMISE children’s potential by developing a love of learning:  We will continue our drive to ensure there are good rates of progress in every year group across the school by focusing on areas which will transform the way children view themselves as learners.

Living in Kingston

One of London’s liveliest boroughs. Life revolves around the Thames, with the buzzing market town of Kingston being the main attraction. Kingston High Street runs parallel to the Thames so it many of its favourite restaurants are found situated along the banks of the riverside.

With the popular Kingston University based here there is an abundance of bars and clubs to entertain the vibrant student population and younger residence.

Kingston upon Thames is one of the greener areas of the capital with two royal parks in neighbouring Richmond upon Thames. Local parks hold facilities to cater for all those who enjoy the great outdoors, such as Canbury Gardens which is home to the Kingston Rowing Club boathouse and is in turn a great spot for fishing.

Only half an hour from central London it has excellent train links. Situated near to the A3 and M25 it is also easily accessible by car. The river bus as an excellent alternative to get into Canary Wharf and London Bridge. 

Landmarks

Wimbledon Championships - In the neighbouring Merton bordering Kingston, the world famous Wimbledon Championships takes place. Indulge yourself in summer fun with a spot of Pimms, and Strawberries and Cream.
