    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.

    I am a huge fan of gratitude, as I think it grounds us in God's goodness. Recently a number of staff have been involved in Nightwatch prayers - moving around staff homes each week to pray for BCS, specifically for staffing needs, building needs and for members of staff who are poorly.

    I am guilty of trying to solve problems myself, but was gently reminded that God has a plan, and our job is to seek that rather than problem solve ourselves. This reminder came from my mum, who gave me the advice to work with what God has given us.

    There have been so many encouraging incidents this week. Beth Krivan (now Wilson) has returned from Australia to join our team. The best news of the week is that Machaela Hutcheson has had some good news about her cancer treatment, with one of the tumours no longer there!

    Praise god for answered prayers.

    Thank you for your continued support of Bradford Christian School

    Have a blessed weekend
