    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 year our school improvement plan includes Christian community development - a big part of our vision for BCS. This week I have witnessed a Christian community at work.

    I want to thank the community for pulling together, for the extra prayers, thoughts, the emails, the staff running around collecting evidence, governors who rearranged scehdules, staff who were observed on days off, and for all the additional effort this week.
    Mrs Garcia showed me a picture of a Spanish human tower - it so reflects the feel of the week. God was placed at the centre, and the community worked hard to keep Him there. Staff, students, governors, parents and churches surrounded us and lifted us in prayer.
    Thanks all, we got through the week!

    Thank you for your continued support of Bradford Christian School

    Have a Blessed Weekend!
