Mrs-FosterWelcome to Christ Church Primary Academy. We are a small school where children, parents  and staff work together as a team. As a Church School, Christian values are at the heart of everything we do and  we are proud of all our fantastic pupils.

We have a culture in which we are constantly striving to achieve the highest standards. Our vision is for all children to love learning, to achieve academically and socially and to aquire the behaviours and characteristics that will allow them to be successful lifelong learners.

Our curriculum is designed to ensure that all children have strong basic skills. We use real life experiences as starting points for learning in order to ensure that pupils engage emotionally as well as intellectually with what we are asking them to learn.

As a school community we all follow the Christ Church way:

  • We care for each other and treat everybody with respect and consideration.
  • We always do our best and strive to be better.
  • We look after our school and make it a wonderful place.
  • We listen carefully and follow instructions.

We hope that you will find our website useful. If you would like to find out more please do not hesitate to contact us. We encourage visits from prospective parents and guarantee a warm welcome.


In 2017 Christ Church Academy was awarded the prestigious Marjorie Boxall Quality Mark Award by national charity the Nurture Group Network.


Nurture Group Network Chief Executive Kevin Kibble said:

Christ Church Academy has evidenced its success in running an outstanding Nurture Group, and the beneficiaries of their hard work every day are the children attending the school, their families and the wider community. Our standards to achieve this award are exacting and many congratulations are due to the staff and pupils at the school”. 

Headteacher Philippa Foster said:  

“We are delighted that the dedication and hard work of our staff, pupils and families has been recognised. We are a nurturing school and are very proud of the excellent provision we are able to offer.”
