School Description

Christ College is an independent co-educational boarding and day school situated near the centre of Brecon in Powys and was founded by Henry VIII in 1541. There are currently 367 pupils on roll, aged from 7 to 18 years, including 111 in the sixth form. In total, there are 209 boys and 158 girls. Around 16% of pupils are from different countries around the world and 9% of pupils are from HM Forces families. About half of pupils board and the school is organised around a house structure. Around 14% of pupils have special educational needs and 20% receive support in learning English as an additional language. A very few pupils are from Welsh-speaking homes or speak Welsh as a first language. Lessons are in English and the school does not aim to make pupils bilingual in English and Welsh. There are 40 full-time and seven part-time teachers. There are a further 88 support staff, of whom 32 are part-time. Since the last inspection in 2011, there have been some significant changes to the structure of the school. In September 2014, the school opened a junior school section admitting pupils from the age of 7 to 11 years to St Nicholas House. In September 2015, the school extended the age range for boarding provision to include pupils in Year 3 through to Year 6. The current headteacher was appointed in September 2017. The school motto is ‘I achieve because I believe I can’. The school aims to provide a high-quality, broad and balanced education, with strong academic provision at its core and with an emphasis on promoting each pupil’s physical, cultural, spiritual and moral development. The school was last inspected in February 2011.
