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.

One of the joys of working at BCS is showing people around school. Visitors often comment on the calm working environment, polite and happy children, good relationships with adults, a friendly welcome and a sense of purpose.

I love it that our mission and vision can be seen in action. In November staff met to consider how we develop Christian character in school. Staff came up with a lot of ideas and insights, summed up nicely here.

Thank you for your support of Bradford Christian School

Have a Blessed Weekend
