Welcome from the headmaster
CtS is a vibrant, inter-cultural, outward-looking school. It is both inclusive and high-achieving. The personal, social, emotional and moral development of each child is at the heart of what we do.
We maintain excellent academic results and are proud of having among the highest point scores in reading and mathematics in Ealing. Almost a third of our 11 year olds will have reached the levels expected of 14 year olds by the time they leave school. Our high academic results go hand-in-hand with high levels of enjoyment, engagement and the application of learning. We are judged outstanding by Ofsted and by our Diocesan Board inspections.
We plan rich and memorable learning experiences by combining Christian values, global dimensions in learning, and Rights Respecting School approaches to create innovative programmes of learning. This approach values art, performance, music, cultural development, and sport equally as important as STEM* subject studies.
Our pupils come from over 40 different countries and more than half speak English as an additional language. They characteristically develop into thoughtful, confident and articulate global citizens with a strong sense of social justice and youth leadership. They influence school life through the school council and house captain systems.
Together with our wonderfully close and thriving parent partnership, we enable our international community in all its diversity to encourage and support each other. We share a vision for the development of 21st century learners and leaders. We promote unity, tolerance and respect and strong relationships exist between the various religious, cultural, social, and ethnic groups.
Our Christian Values:
compassion | creation | endurance | forgiveness | friendship | hope | humility | justice | koinonia (fellowship) | peace | reverence | service | thankfulness | trust | wisdom.
The Gospel teaches us that every person has a unique task to do, with God, and for God, whether they know it or not. It doesn’t necessarily mean that everyone involved has to share the same theology or philosophy. It doesn’t mean that everyone knows that they have this relationship with God, and is consciously working at it. But a Christian school is one in which the entire atmosphere is pervaded by the conviction that there is something mysterious, and potentially wonderful, in everybody. Everything we do for each child in our care stems from this conviction.
We look forward to welcoming you!
