Middle School Topic

One of our character and faith objectives is to encourage service, and thinking of others. This week Middle School Topic involved presentations about different charities. Students have worked in teams to research and advocate for their chosen charity, and today a panel of judges came to vote.

Everyone did really well promoting their chosen charity, and the winners were Tehila 


Mabel and Martin are the country directors in Zambia, and they happened to be here in the UK to watch the presentation.

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.

As a school we have a rather large document called the SIP (School Improvement Plan) This is set by the leadership team and governors each year and referred to on a regular basis in our weekly leadership  and monthly governor meetings. It is a three year plan, with a focus on one year at a time.

The plan is subdivided into areas relating to our vision and mission statement.  These areas are:

  • Christian Community
  • Character and faith
  • Knowledge, understanding and wisdom 
  • Leadership and management

Other news about our SIP:

Visits and visitors are now re established, with students moving all over this term. This week we have had trips to Skipton Castle, the Duke of Edinburgh expedition practice, a charity competition, and parent prayer in school.

GCSE and Functional Skills external exams started this week and are going well so far.

Plans to extend our building are currently underway, with the proposed demolition of Room 10 in the summer holidays. It will be replaced by two new classrooms. This week our playground side windows were completed.

Mr Phillips’ drama production went really well, and was enjoyed by staff, students and families. 

I want to thank the people in our community who have helped make these things happen.

Thank you for your support of Bradford Christian School

Have a Blessed Weekend
