Head Teacher's Introduction
At St. Christopher’s Secondary we provide a first class, independent education, which not only prepares our pupils for the internationally recognised IGCSE, A-Level and BTEC examinations, but we also pride ourselves on providing our pupils with everything they need in order to become the very best version of themselves. This unwavering commitment enables our learners to excel in whichever course they choose to chart and wherever in the world they wish to do so.
We believe that pupils should question ideas, challenge opinions and form their own identity in the process. Through inquiry-based learning, we seek to provide our pupils with the ideal platform to become forward-thinking, accomplished and confident members of society.
As well as a rigorous and dynamic academic programme, we challenge our pupils to develop as well-rounded individuals through a robust and enriching sport, music, drama and creative arts programme. It is this commitment to holistic education that truly sets St. Christopher’s pupils apart, as they go on to make purposeful and meaningful impacts on the world and the people around them.
In the Secondary School we also believe strongly in character and through our Values Based Education (VBE) programme, our pupils explore the concept that values are the guides for our thinking and behaviour. VBE allows our pupils to strengthen their compassion and also confirm their sense of global citizenship and international mindfulness.
I look forward to welcoming you to St. Christopher’s Secondary School.
Mr Joshua Gibbons
Executive Headmaster: Head of Secondary.
St. Christopher’s International School offers a wide range of scholarships to candidates who demonstrate exceptional talent in a specific area or in multiple disciplines.
Scholarships offer candidates mentorship and enrichment opportunities as well as a tution fee reduction of between 5% – 20% depending on the scholarship awarded and also the quality of the candidate’s application
The criteria for each category reflects St. Christopher’s commitment to a well-rounded education and asks that all scholars contribute positively to this goal by being an active member within the wider school community, both within and outside of the classroom. Scholarships are awarded for the duration of the pupil’s time at SCIS, subject to annual monitoring and review by the School of the candidate’s performance and commitment to the scholarship criteria. The Executive Headmaster has the right to withdraw a scholarship at any time if behaviour, commitment and progress are not being maintained by the candidate.
Scholarship assessment takes place throughout the academic year, before a pupil joins the School. Applications should be supported by the pupil’s current Head of School or by the appropriate Head of Department for specific discipline scholarships.
Application forms are available from the Secondary Admin Office, via [email protected] A non-refundable assessment fee of 3,000Kes is required for all applicants.
All decisions on the outcome of these assessment are final and rest solely with the Executive Headmaster.
