Welcome to Christ the King R.C Primary School.

Welcome to our school, my name is Mrs Morita Metcalfe and I am proud to be head of Christ the King School.

As head teacher of Christ the King R.C. Primary School, I extend a very warm welcome to you, I hope that for you and your child this will be the beginning of a long, happy experience.

Long known for its high achievements, due to work of our dedicated teachers and staff, our pupils achieve a high level of academic excellence. It is my intention to build an enormous capacity for excellence and to improve our academic programme by enhancing the curriculum through creativity. As head teacher of Christ the King, I intend to work closely with the members of the Christ the King community to expand and enhance the educational opportunities that our wonderful school offers.

As a parent, I know you wish for your child to be safe, receive a good education, gain a sense of responsibility and demonstrate spiritual growth. In order to enhance each child’s personal and academic growth, I ask that parents be involved on a daily basis. Whether it’s checking your child’s homework, talking with teachers, coming to school social events, attending celebratory events or joining the 200 club or PTFA – The more you show your child you care, the more positive their primary school experience will be.

Therefore, in partnership with you, the strong links between the school, the Parish and home will be maintained and valued.

Christ the King School is a wonderful school and has a lot of positivity. This is continually being reinforced by our school motto – Christ be our light and our guide. Christ the King will strive to help your child reach their full potential and be happy whilst achieving it.

Yours sincerely,
Mrs M Metcalfe,
