Here at Christ Church Academy we are driven to keep improving our school because we thrive on providing a safe, stimulating environment where children and young people can learn, explore, play and grow.

Edible Garden

Gardening has many health and therapeutic benefits, and can be enjoyed by everyone. People with disabilities, older people and children can find it especially rewarding to spend time in the garden tending plants and growing their own food. With some planning and thought, you can create an interesting, productive and pleasant space that can be used as an edible garden.

An edible garden is a garden that contains flowers, herbs, seeds, berries and plants that you can eat. It does not have to be large. Your garden can start small with a few pots and containers, or even just a window box with a few herbs.

Benefits of growing an edible garden

Research shows that gardening is a healthy activity. Working in the garden provides benefits that include:

  • enjoyment – from the physical activity
  • exercise – physical activity improves your endurance, strength, mobility and flexibility
  • relaxation – helps you relax and reduce stress levels
  • fresh food – provides you and your family with a healthy source of inexpensive fresh food
  • appreciation of food growing – provides an understanding of foods and their origin.

Our new playground Installation. 

We are thrilled to announce the latest enhancement to Christ Church Academy – our brand-new playground! At the heart of our commitment to holistic education is the recognition that a well-rounded learning experience extends beyond the classroom. The installation of this vibrant and thoughtfully designed playground not only adds an exciting dimension to our school grounds but also provides a space where students can engage in active play, fostering physical health, social interaction, and imaginative exploration.

This new playground serves as a testament to our dedication to creating an enriching environment for our students. As they laugh, play, and create lasting memories, we celebrate the importance of balancing academics with moments of joy and recreation.

We invite our Christ Church Academy community to explore and enjoy this wonderful addition to our school. Together, let’s continue to nurture an atmosphere that encourages growth, happiness, and the holistic development of our student

Our new Multi Purpose Hall. 

We are delighted to share the transformation of our old cloakroom shower areas into a dynamic and versatile space – our new Multi-Purpose Hall. This carefully revamped area is now a hub of activity where our students can engage in various sports, dance, and gymnastics.

This innovative upgrade reflects our commitment to providing our students with diverse opportunities for physical activity and expression. The Multi-Purpose Hall not only expands our facilities but also opens up avenues for creativity, teamwork, and healthy competition. It is a space where our children can discover and nurture their talents in a supportive and vibrant environment.
