    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 half term is the time for Year 11 mock GCSEs. Our students are starting to feel the pressure of exams, and staff and students would really appreciate your prayers. Mr Prothero wrote to Year 11 parents this week, explaining that some stress is a good motivator, but we would like students to have a balance of appropriate levels of stress and peace of mind. As a Christian school we know that academics are important, they open up life choices for our students as they become adults. We also know that God created us in his image,  and whilst we want everyone to do their best, we know that God sees each of us as made in his own image fearfully and wonderfully made. 
    If you don't know how to pray for our year 11s,  I suggest using Philippians 4:6-7 (NKJV) as a starting point:

    “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”

    Thank you for your continued support of Bradford Christian School

    Have a blessed weekend
