We are passionate about providing students with an environment that fosters confidence, learning, fun and personal success. With our in-house expertise, students will be encouraged to find the best ways to learn and develop their skills and understanding. Our dream is to have students who leave St. Christopher’s as fully rounded individuals confident in their own ability and strengths.

We are not a special needs school. What makes us unique is the attention given to individuals in an environment where they are able to be themselves and gain confidence in their own skills and abilities as well as face their struggles with support and encouragement. We do not restrict a student’s learning through low expectations but rather encourage growth, development and risk-taking through the delivery of high quality targeted teaching and learning. We believe in success in all forms.

Emphasis is placed, where necessary, on skills-based and vocational subjects
