Answers to questions you may have
What's different about Christ-centred education?
The whole curriculum and way of looking at the world is based on biblical principles, i.e. the world is God's and was made by God. He has a plan and a purpose for each person in it, all of whom are uniquely loved by him. We measure all our teaching by God's word and show the children how His word applies to everyday life.
Aren't you just indoctrinating children?
We can never 'make' children into Christians - that's the convicting and regeneration of the Holy Spirit to which each child is free to respond personally.
Surely you're just sheltering them from a harsh world?
No. We are teaching the children to see the world from God's point of view and to make their own decisions, knowing how God would have them handle difficult situations.
Shouldn't we be salt and light in our society?
Yes. As adults, we should be right at the forefront but not putting our untrained, vulnerable children there. By giving them a sound Christian grounding we best prepare them to take their God-ordained place in society.
Is it academic?
Certainly. It is important that each child is helped to reach his/her potential. We challenge children who are gifted and talented as well as giving appropriate support to those with special needs. Most of our pupils are achieving at or above national expectations for their age.
Do we have to pay any fees?
Yes. We do not receive any grant or aid from the government. The fees are based on a sliding scale depending on parental income. More information can be found on our admissions page.
