About Us

Welcome to Christ’s College Finchley. The school is mixed comprehensive, accepting both girls  and boys.

Christ’s College Finchley is a happy school and a stimulating place to learn.  We welcome your interest and hope that the website will give you a flavour of life here.

We are proud of our long history stretching back to 1857, but we are also forward looking, embracing the modern world as a specialist school for mathematics and science.  We are non-selective and have no religious affiliation.  Our enthusiastic student body of 750 students aged 11 to 16 and over 200 students of both sexes in the Sixth Form, works in productive partnership with well qualified and committed staff, hardworking governors and supportive parents.

We believe diligence and high standards of behaviour in an inspiring and friendly environment lead to success.  We always strive for excellence and celebrate achievement.  With a strongly supportive pastoral system we are able to bring out the best in every student.  As a result they develop their talents and interests and achieve excellent examination results. We are pleased to say that we are popular with both students and parents and always over-subscribed.

We have long been well respected with the local community and our students are proud of their school.  Learning experiences outside the classroom are always encouraged and backed by our commitment to forge new links with businesses and other schools.  Whether they go on to further education (as most do) or enter the world of work, we are confident that our students are well equipped to embark on worthwhile and productive careers – indeed many ex-students make a major impact on business or society.

With so many opportunities on offer we believe Christ’s College Finchley is an exciting place to be.
