"You have collectively given (my daughter) the most extraordinary start in life. She is leaving Saint Christina's academically prepared, but more importantly, imbued with the school values and knowing the importance of using these to drive the way she lives her life. In the Spring, when I wasn't able to be present in her life, I had total confidence and trust in the care and guidance the school gave her. I know this takes enormous effort, generosity and skill from the team. And I simply wanted to pass on my thanks for this, most precious of gifts, to (my daughter) and to us her parents and to thank you all for 8 years of truly exceptional education." Year 6 Parent, 2020
During lock down, many schools faced the new challenge of providing remote lessons. Saint Christina's worked hard to ensure that pupils continued to receive a high quality of education, and to support parents as far as possible.
