Preparatory School

How we grow future servants and leaders

Grade 1 - 6

Christ Church Preparatory School provides a top-quality education to its students. Our school is a place where students develop a love for learning through exploration, collaboration, and actively participating in the learning process. Our preparatory phase starts by guiding students in small class sizes to get used to formal learning. We encourage our students to work hard and to remain committed to their studies in order to achieve academic excellence based on their unique potential. We understand the importance of preparing our students for the future, which is why we prioritise the development of 21st-century skills.

At our school, we believe in a well-rounded education which encompasses academic, cultural, and physical growth. Through our heart-led approach and commitment to intentional teaching, we meet each student where they are in their learning journey. We strive to help each student discover their own talents and interests. Recognising that every child is unique, we tailor our approach to meet individual needs and strengths.

In addition to academics, we foster spiritual growth in our students, guided by our Christian ethos and strong Christian values. We aim to equip our students with the tools and values they need to positively impact the world and make a difference in society. Outreach plays a key role in developing ideals of partnership and servant leadership. The school consistently encourages the students to give to those around them. These principles are at the core of our mission statement and values. Prayer is an integral part of the day through all phases.
