Can you support us in our mission to open England's first Classical Christian School?
Much like today, the people of England in the 9th century were slowly but surely losing their faith in God and the Kingdom was suffering as a consequence. The ruler at the time, King Alfred, knew there had to be a spiritual revival if his kingdom was to survive. To bring about such a revival, he made a 'Classical Education' available to as many of his subjects as he possibly could. His people became literate and Alfred had the writings of the early church fathers translated into English and even began translating the Bible himself! His plan worked and through his educational reforms there was a revival in the spiritual and cultural life of the nation, earning him the title of Alfred the Great.
The founders of The King Alfred school would like to see such a revival in the 21st century. We are offering local families a Classical Christian Education. We believe that we can offer a rigorous education that teaches children to cherish this country's wonderful Christian heritage in a way that helps them grow up to become wise and virtuous adult Christians.
We aim to open the primary section of the school in September 2021. God has blessed us with a building that is very nearly school ready and our application to be a fully registered school was submitted on January the 31st 2021. We are thankful for the support we have received from local people and churches and because of this we were able to achieve our 2020 fundraising milestones.
We are now are faced with costs totalling £17,000 this covers: upgrading toilet blocks, security systems, playground fencing, fire door installation and lighting. All this work is essential to be able to successfully pass the inspection conducted by The Department for Education.
