"The distinctiveness and effectiveness of Accrington St Christopher's Church of England High School as a Church of England school are outstanding

"The clear Christian vision of the senior management team (SMT), ably led by the headteacher and well supported by governors and the director of spirituality, ensures that the academy is a caring and inclusive community in which learners flourish as ‘children of God’."

"Attainment is high and progress is very good. This clearly demonstrates the positive impact of the academy’s ethos on learners’ excellent behaviour and on strong, mutually respectful relationships."
