Main School Open Evening Invitation

I am delighted to invite you to our annual Open Night which this year will take place on Tuesday 4th October from 6.00 - 8.00pm.

This popular event will provide you with the opportunity to view our facilities, meet staff, together with literally hundreds of our pupils. It is a special feature of a St Christopher’s open evening that so many of our pupils volunteer to act as guides and subject ambassadors for one of the flagship events in the school year. They are proud of their school and I know that they are already looking forward to meeting you and your son or daughter.

I too am looking forward to spending time with our new prospective parents and pupils. You will have the opportunity to listen to me during a short presentation (repeated three times during the evening) which will explain the special features of this Outstanding church school (SIAMS 2016-17). I will also spend some time explaining as clearly as possible the admissions criteria which the governors apply to entry for Year 7.

As a father of three I am acutely aware of the importance of choosing the right secondary school. Please, in addition to visiting us, spend some time studying our most recent Ofsted inspection report (March 2022), SIAMS inspection (December 2016), and 2019 academic results – all available by following the links highlighted. Taken together I am confident that this evidence provides a compelling case for St Christopher’s as a national high performing school and the leading secondary school in East Lancashire.

Kind regards,

R D Jones
