Congratulations to ex St. Christopher’s pupil, Femi Sofolarin who has recently been capped at Rugby for Scotland U18s. In the 4 games played so far he managed to score 2 tries, both against England, to help Scotland to a well-deserved victory.

He is one of several ex St Christopher’s pupils who have achieved national honours.

Well done to all.

Good Luck to our very own courageous Mrs Wanstall who is taking part in the London Marathon this weekend raising funds for the Barnardo’s charity.

If you are attending the Marathon and see her, give her a rousing cheer. (She will be the one with pink hair)!!

A Marathon Effort -from Mrs Wanstall Print E-mail

Dear Parents,


I hope you enjoyed the Easter break.

I am writing to let you know, that I am privileged to have been given a ballot place to run in the London Marathon this year on Sunday 22nd April.

Over the last few months, as well as planning lessons, having fun teaching my class and marking work, I have been running a ridiculous number of miles in the hope that I can complete the 26.2 mile route and run through the finish line at Buckingham Palace with a smile on my face.

I have decided to put my efforts to good use by raising money for Barnardo’s which is the charity that our school has been supporting this year. If you would like to show your support by sponsoring me you can go to or alternatively I will be having a bucket collection in the car park on Friday 20th April.

If you would like to try and spot me on the television or at the event, I will be spraying my hair pink in the hope that I am easier to pick out in the crowds!

Michelle Wanstall

Welcome Back! Letter from the Headmaster. Print E-mail

17th April 2018

Dear Parents

Against the backdrop of the Commonwealth Games and the threat of hot weather ensuing, may I welcome you all back to the Summer Term 2018.

I will start with a polite request that considerate parking is the way forward this term. On several occasions last term, irate locals bombarded me with photographic evidence of inappropriate parking and with accounts of antisocial behaviour. I favour a ‘quiet life’ on the whole and a reasonable rapport with long suffering neighbours, so would greatly appreciate your co-operation in the matter.

For your information, this term children should now wear Summer uniform, while cricket whites are requested in the Prep school for afternoon games. Each Thursday, beginning 19th April, Years 2,3 & 4 are timetabled to swim at the Spa.

Clubs are due to start on Monday 23rd April and finish the week beginning Monday 25th June.

Trips this term include Reception to High Elms, Y2 to The Tower of London, Y3 to Swattenden & Y5 to Bowles and numerous other day trips and matches. We also have a production, namely ‘Dream On’ to look forward to in June, three sports days, KG & LS (both at school) and Prep at Old Dunstonians and a swimming gala. We will also host Rec/Y1 Prize Giving at school on the morning of 28th June, while the rest of the school (Y2 – Y6) will present their Prize Giving at St. George’s Church on Tuesday 3rd July.

Finally, it was a delight to receive a carefully sellotaped brown envelope from Mrs Suzanne Newton, a previous Head at St. Christopher’s. Suzanne is now 89, very active and living in Cornwall. She forwarded me a magazine which included a fascinating article on Sir Robin Knox-Johnston the sailing legend, the relevance being that he was an old boy at the school!

Happy Sailing !


Musical Reception Print E-mail

The children in RC were entertained by two musicians at the end of term - Emily Morris and Emma Jones. Mrs Gay was very impressed...perhaps a Junior orchestra in the making!
