Governing Board to Admit Girls and Boys from September 2018

As you will be aware Christ’s College Finchley  have been consulting on whether to change its admissions criteria to admit both girls and boys in to Year 7 from September 2018.

A summary of responses to the main questions is given below.

Following very careful consideration of the views of current students, staff and the consultation survey results, the Governing Board of Christ’s College Finchley have made a decision to admit both girls and boys in to Year 7 from September 2018.

Entry in to Year 7 in September 2017 will be boys only and all students currently in Years 7-10 will remain in boys-only classes up to Year 11.

The school will retain its determination to provide world class education for all students attending. The Governing Board and I are convinced that this decision will allow us to serve our local community most effectively and deliver the excellent education our current students deserve and which parents rightly expect.

The final decision as to whether this change can proceed is taken by the Regional Schools Commissioner for London and the south east. We will inform you as soon as we know the outcome.
