From the Head

Welcome to St Christopher’s. I hope very much that exploring our website will encourage you to visit us and experience our remarkable school for yourself.  

At St Christopher’s, we aim to create a warm and creative environment where girls are given the best possible opportunity to develop and flourish. It is a nurturing, yet challenging, place where girls can discover their identity and purpose, alongside receiving rigorous academic preparation for a wide range of senior schools.

I am delighted that Sandrine Paillasse has been appointed to be the new head from September 2020.  Ms Paillasse is currently Deputy Head, Director of Pastoral Care at St Paul’s Girls’ School and has over twenty years of experience in education, including senior positions at various girls’ independent schools, such as Queen’s College and South Hampstead High School, where she was acting head for a term.  

I hope that when you visit, you will find our girls have a natural confidence in themselves and a refreshingly open-minded attitude. They are encouraged from the outset to think creatively and independently, to make bold decisions and to develop a love of learning for its own sake.

The girls move on from St Christopher’s equipped with secure foundations to thrive at senior school - and beyond!

We would be delighted to welcome you to St Christopher’s. Simply contact our registrar, Jessica Haydon, to book a visit.
