Christian values and academic excellence
Maranatha Christian School opened its doors in 1990 to a handful of youngsters whose parents wanted an education for their children based on Biblical foundations and Christian values. The new school quickly grew in numbers and facilities, and presently has around sixty students, housed on our Queenlaines Farm site near the village of Sevenhampton. We are just a few miles from Swindon in rural surroundings that make the school a peaceful haven in a busy world.
In 2001 the management of the school was put into trust and is now governed by a Board of Trustees, who as parents of children at Maranatha Christian School have a vested interest in the progress of the School, and a committed and practical hands-on approach to their responsibilities.
In recent years we have developed the School’s facilities to include new learning centres, art and science rooms, library, IT suite and preschool. We have well-established links with other Christian schools in the region, and meet up with other Christian students from all parts of the UK and Europe in the annual Student Convention organised by Christian Education Europe, the suppliers of the Accelerated Christian Education curriculum that is the basis of our academic programme.
We are a fully accredited independent school with charitable status, and are not supported by government funding in any way. We are regularly inspected by HMI, with whom we have a positive and constructive relationship. Our Ofsted reports are available in the About section.
Our students work towards and graduate with the International Certificate of Christian Education (see later for comparability with other national qualifications), which is now widely accepted by the majority of universities and colleges in the UK.
