Covenant Christian School began because a group of Christians, who had met regularly for five years to study education in the light of the Bible, came to believe that they could not bring their children up "in the training and instruction of the Lord" within the existing education system. The school they founded opened in March 1981 with a team of four parents teaching three five year-olds in the dining room of an 18th century farmhouse in Reddish, Stockport


By the middle of 1985 the building could not hold the growing number of children but God graciously provided a new and larger home, a Victorian house in Heaton Moor with outbuildings that could be converted into classrooms.


Eight years later our oldest pupils, including some who had joined us in our first year, reached the age of 16 and for the first time our pupils were taking their GCSE examinations. Today we have many testimonies from parents and past pupils on the academic and spiritual benefits of being part of the school.


It is our vision that, together with other Christian schools in Manchester, we make Christian education available for many more families.
