Anglican Schools Review (SIAMS)

National Society Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools Report

Christ's School, Queens Road, Richmond, London TW10 6HW

Christ's School was inspected on 4-5 October 2023 using the new SIAMS framework, launched in September 2023. Under the new Framework Christ's were delighted to be awarded a J1 judgement: Through its vision and practice, the school is living up to its foundation as a Church school and is enabling pupils and adults to flourish.

The report acknowledges Christ's focus on both our excellent pastoral support for our students and also our ability to challenge students to live life to the full, achieveing their full potential; "this deeply caring attitude goes hand in hand with high aspiration for what each member of the school community can achieve. This is evidenced by an ambitious curriculum and strong educational outcomes at GCSE and A level. The school’s mantra of ‘excellence as standard’ challenges all to be the best they can be."

The Inspector recognised "the commitment of staff to go the extra mile to support their students" and that "school leaders show an unswerving commitment to leading the school in a Christian way. They combine a deep pastoral care for all members of the school community with real aspiration that all should live life to the full."

Christ's is an inclusive school where "both adults and students of different faiths and worldviews speak of their gratitude that they can ‘be themselves’ at Christ’s. Their spirituality, whatever form it takes, is accepted and supported."
