A new Christian school is opening its doors in northern England, with a motto that could appeal to those who want a simple yet challenging alternative to traditional schools.
The school, Christian Schools, is based in Cirencester, near Newcastle.
The motto is “The Good School,” and it means to be “good and good for everyone.”
The school was founded by a group of Christian parents with a goal to help the poor and disadvantaged.
The idea is to provide a place for people who have no place to go, and a place to get away from it all, the school’s headteacher, Jocelyn Riddoch, told the BBC.
She said the school had a mission to provide students with an opportunity to grow and flourish.
“We want to make sure that all the students are in the best possible position to go on to the next level, whether it be through vocational training, apprenticeship or after they have graduated,” she said.
The first Christian school in the UK is expected to open in 2020.
More to come.
