    Headteacher's Message

    Our Mission

    To provide a holistic Christian education for all and to inspire discipleship.

    Our Vision

    To be a Christian community in which everyone grows in character, faith, knowledge, understanding and wisdom.

    This week we have been consolidating staffing for 2024/25, making sure that all subjects are covered and gaps from those staff leaving are filled. This was done with a great deal of prayer from a lot of people, and we can confidently look ahead to the new school year. 

    I am pleased to let you know that we are fully staffed for September.

    I will let you know more about this in the upcoming weeks, but I am so grateful to Mr Moon, who graciously supported my handover to headship. He has been so supportive and encouraging as I have taken on this role, there are not many founders who could remain in school whilst someone else takes the leadership, but he has done this with humility and grace.

    This is Mr Moon’s last term at BCS, after thirty one years of sacrifice for BCS. We will say goodbye to him formerly at the end of year celebration on July 11th.

    Thanks Mr Moon.

    Jane Prothero

    Thank you for your continued support of Bradford Christian School

    Have a blessed bank holiday weekend
