Overview

Christ’s College are consulting on changing their admission arrangements, and have asked Barnet to support them by publishing their consultation on our Engage space.

Founded in 1857, Christ’s College has a proud history of providing an excellent education for children in the London Borough of Barnet and elsewhere. The school currently offers a comprehensive education for boys, with girls welcomed into the sixth form.

Christ’s College Finchley is now consulting on a proposal that will see a marked step in its history. Based on our successful experience of welcoming girls into the sixth form, we are now consulting on a proposal to become a fully co-educational school.

The proposal is to admit boys and girls to Year 7 from September 2018 with the aim to become a fully co-educational school by 2023. If the proposal proceeds, Christ’s College Finchley will be a school where boys and girls work, study and collaborate together to develop their talents and interests and achieve excellence as they transition into adulthood.

Why We Are Consulting

The proposal has the potential to provide East Finchley with the high quality coeducation establishment many parents are seeking. Local parents tell us that there is a growing demand for coeducational school places and it would mean that families could send both their sons and daughters to us.

The school’s resolute objective of providing a world class education for all its students will remain intact. Current parents will continue to recognise the caring community environment which demands the very highest standards from leadership, from teachers and from students. We will continue to develop the school’s unique and powerful blend of the best aspects of traditional education combined with skilled innovation and creativity that provides the rich environment in which students thrive (OFSTED 2016).

We are seeking the views of current and prospective parents/carers and family members of existing students, staff, community members and other key stakeholders (e.g. local councillors, neighbouring schools, partner primary schools).

Give Us Your Views

Please take the time to read our consultation document, which includes an FAQ section, and then give us your views on our proposals by completing the online survey.

There will also be a public meeting at Christ’s College on Tuesday 16 May at 7pm, to allow members of the community to ask questions and share their views about the proposed changes.
