School History

Handsworth Christian School opened in September 1986 and we will celebrate our 30th anniversary in 2016. The school opened with just 9 pupils and 3 teachers, and has steadily grown to approximately 100 pupils.  The school was founded by the Sheffield Christian Life Centre (previously Handsworth Full Gospel Church).  We are now autonomous and a registered charity and limited company in our own right.

Over the years many improvements have been made to the buildings and the grounds. Having purchased the land on which the school is situated, it is now far easier for us to make a difference to the quality of the school environment.

The main school building was originally a factory, and has undergone major renovation. The addition of portable buildings enabled us to have a purpose-built laboratory for science teaching. Security has improved with the installation of fencing around the school grounds. The playground has been improved and we now have a full ICT suite for computing. Further improvements are planned.
