Welcome to Christ’s College Finchley’s website.
We hope that it provides you with a flavour of life at our historic and successful school. Prospective parents are invited to contact us to arrange a tour to see our school in action.
At Christ’s College Finchley we pursue academic excellence for all of our students; resolute in the belief that every child has great potential and should be given every opportunity to fulfil it. The calm and purposeful atmosphere that pervades the school facilitates the high quality learning environment which stimulates the acquisition of new knowledge and develops understanding and vital skills. The school fosters a caring community environment which demands the very highest standards of work, uniform and behaviour.
We are proud of our long history of success which stretches back to 1857, but we are very much a forward looking establishment..The school’s powerful blend of the best aspects of traditional education combined with skilled innovation and creativity provides a rich environment for student progress. We ensure that our most able students are stretched and challenged and provide the necessary support to students with special needs. We make full use of our specialism to ensure that our students and staff employ the best of the new technologies to enhance teaching and stimulate learning.
Our long standing tradition of developing our students into highly successful people who make a significant impact in their chosen careers and our wider society is once again demonstrated by our exam performance data. You will note that we are in the top 250 secondary schools nationwide (top 10%) for the performance of boys.
Whilst we celebrate the excellent academic progress we demand of our students we place a high value on allowing students to develop skills and expertise in important areas outside of the main curriculum. We have a strong record of sporting success and our curriculum is fortified with a rich and varied diet of learning experiences designed to develop, a work ethic, character, resilience, cultural awareness and ambition.
I am determined that every student at Christ’s College will be able to reflect on their time at Christ’s College as a happy and fulfilling time which provided the foundations needed for their long term future success.
