Established in 2010, St Christopher’s is a Church of England Sixth Form in which the person of Jesus Christ and the message of the gospels lie at the heart of everything we do. We welcome warmly students of all faiths and none, and value the contribution that each and every student, from whatever background, makes to our community. Relationships, respect for each other and mutual support are part and parcel of St Christopher’s ‘Way’. It is this environment, with the emphasis on the nurturing of each person’s well-being as a whole, that provides the ground for academic success.

A warm welcome from the Headmaster - Celebrating 10 years of success

The choice of where to study after compulsory schooling can be daunting. Since opening in 2010, St Christopher’s Sixth Form has already established itself as a leading force in the delivery of A-level and you can be confident that our well qualified and experienced staff are well placed to get the very best from every student. Our 99% pass rate and excellent results for grades A*- C already place us in the top 100 schools nationally, and as a top five provider in Lancashire. Ninety per cent of our university-bound sixth formers gained a place at their first choice university, with a significant proportion now studying at Russell Group institutions, including Oxbridge. These achievements have already opened doors to a brighter future for hundreds of students.

We believe that well-supported, happy and fulfilled students not only perform better in examinations but are also better served by their school and so we place a great emphasis on supporting you culturally, spiritually, physically, and, of course, academically. Ensuring the development of every individual helps to make St Christopher’s “An outstanding” Sixth Form Centre (Ofsted 2016). Each person is cared for by our committed pastoral leaders, our form tutors, our Chaplaincy Team, and our Learning Support Department. We work to ensure that every student has high self-esteem, a commitment to others and an awareness of the deeper issues of life. Young people thrive in the supportive ethos of our Church school.

Should you choose to study with us you will be taught in one of the most modern and complete school sixth forms in the country. The many social spaces - a vibrant student hub, all-day café, and roof garden - are complemented by excellent IT facilities, purpose built specialist classrooms and a dedicated library.We welcome students of all faiths, as well as those of none, who embrace our values and who wish to join us in our anniversary year.

A message from the Head of the Sixth Form

We are pleased that you are considering St Christopher’s Sixth Form, and hope you find everything you need on our website.

Our Sixth Form has now been open for eleven years, during which time we have been proud to have many students pass through our community and go on to be successful in great universities, high level apprenticeships and good careers. Former students of St Christopher’s Sixth Form now work and live throughout the UK and abroad, and it is wonderful that they keep in touch so we can follow their exciting and diverse careers.

After the last very challenging 18 months, we are all very glad to be back and having lessons as normal and supporting our students as they start the A-level journey or as they look to future Universities, Apprenticeships or work. Despite the difficulties they faced, our students this year have received fantastic results and are now off to their chosen destinations, with exciting times ahead.

At St Christopher’s we strive to put the Gospel at the heart of all
we do. This has been even more evident over recent months as our Sixth Form community has pulled together to support one another. As we said goodbye to our Year 13s in August and wished them well for the future we look forward to welcoming all the students who will follow them.

Come and see us at Open Evening, arrange a visit or look at our virtual Open Evening on our website and discover how St Christopher’s can be part of your success story.
