Vision & Mission
"My goal is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge." -Colossians 2:2-3
Our vision is to train up godly students whose virtue and reason is aligned with God’s. We believe that the foundation to all knowledge is Jesus Christ, in whom we find all wisdom, truth and life. As such, any learning that is apart from Him is lacking to some extent.
"They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor." -Isaiah 61:3
We aim to nurture and cultivate students as they mature from saplings through to mighty oaks. The oak tree is a relatable image here in the UK, with most trees reaching a height between 20-40m. Unknown to many, however, is that the root systems of mature trees can total hundreds of miles. We seek to produce men and women who are extensively rooted and established in Christ and the Word of God.
If the chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever, what better goal is there than to see men and women whose lives are a display of His glory and splendor. As their roots go deep, the fruit that they bear will be the fruit of the Spirit.
"They will rebuild the ancient ruins and restore the places long devastated; they will renew the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations." -Isaiah 61:4
We seek to restore the Christian heritage of education in this city. Christians were at the forefront of excellence in education over a period of almost 1000 years. As standards of education decline, the gap has opened for Christians to once again restore the ancient ruins. By offering high standards of education we can show the emptiness of what the world has to offer, in contrast to the glorious riches we have in Christ Jesus.
‘He is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ.’ - Colossians 1:28
Bilney Classical Christian School seeks to provide a Christ-centred education focused on excellence in faith, character, and academics.
