About Us

Watchorn Christian School was opened in 2018 as an independent school that offers education to children aged from Nursery to Year 6 (age 3-11).

The school accommodates up to 45 pupils at one time, during the academic year 2021/22 there is half that amount enrolled. The school doesn’t have a local catchment area and can take pupils from fee paying families from across both Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire counties.



Mission Statement


At Watchorn Christian Nursery School, it is our mission to educate children from a Biblical perspective, teaching them to love the Lord their God with all their heart, soul and strength (Matthew 22:37) whilst enabling them to achieve all the plans that God has for them in order to impact the wider World.


Vision Statement


Students at Watchorn Christian Schools will be grounded in God’s word and equipped to develop their gifts and talents through excellent teaching, a caring environment and in partnership with parents.




We will recognise that God is our creator.

We will respect authority and each other.

We will work hard in every task as if working for the Lord.

We will build a community of love and grace accepting each others’ differences.

We will set clear and safe boundaries through positive praise and consistent discipline.
