Our History

Saint Christina’s School was founded in 1949 by the Handmaids of the Sacred Heart of Jesus as an Independent Catholic School in the Archdiocese of Westminster. Since then the School has grown considerably and continues to flourish, always seeking to meet the needs of all of its pupils in an ever-changing world. Saint Christina’s remains a charitable trust and forms part of a world-wide family founded by Saint Raphaela Mary in the nineteenth century.

The Order looks to Christ in the Eucharist as the source of Life and Wisdom. In our School children everywhere can capture these ideals and experience the joy of learning and the wonder of God and His Creation.
