Head Teacher's Welcome
On behalf of our pupils, staff and governors I would like to take this opportunity of welcoming you to our school website. St Christopher’s school is situated in Wrexham town centre and provides education for pupils with a range of additional learning needs. These needs include, severe physical, medical and learning difficulties, social, emotional and behavioural difficulties, and autistic spectrum disorders. Our school offers an extensive range of accredited vocational courses for pupils 14-19 years old. Specialist areas and facilities include the ‘Millennium Eco Centre’, hair and beauty salon and the extensive links with the local further education college.
St Christopher’s has a strong and sustained commitment and reputation for placing children and their families at the centre of everything we do. School staff and governors work together tirelessly to develop all pupils to their full potential, both educationally and socially, and to build upon their independent living skills in a safe, caring and stimulating environment. At the heart of everything we do we aim to ensure that every learner attending our school meets his or her potential, makes strong progress in areas that are important to and for them, acquire the basic functional skills they need and have robust plans to support transition on to the next steps in their lives.
We understand our pupils as individuals and want them to be happy and thrive in our community. We aim to promote pupils’ love for learning as well as their self-esteem, resilience and confidence in time that they are with us.
We enjoy strong working relationships with a wide range of partners including health, social care and charitable trusts to provide the very best learning experiences. Our dedicated team of teachers, support staff and specialist workers are highly skilled in providing a holistic learning experience for all our pupils. We believe that by promoting strong wellbeing we will open opportunities for all our learners to enjoy learning with us.
Staff and governors are firmly committed to developing the St Christopher’s offer and community which will provide every pupil with the individualised support and experiences to support their progress in our school.
I hope that our website gives you some insight into our work. However, it is impossible to capture the energy and business of our school from day-to-day. I encourage you to kink with us and come and visit to experience the truly remarkable learning community that is St Christopher’s School.
On behalf of pupils, staff and governors we look forward to welcoming you to St Christopher’s school.
