History[edit]

The school started as a private Anglican school in 1952 within Christ Church Parish at Dorset Road to meet the needs of those students who had missed the mainstream education. It was renamed Christ Church Secondary School (CHR) when it became a Government-aided school in 1973. Due to the growing student population, the school moved to Tyrwhitt Road campus, formerly occupied by Victoria School, in 1985. The school was relocated to a brand new campus in Woodlands in December 2001.

Houses[edit]

The 4 houses in CHR - GRIT; RUGGED; BOLD; POWER. The houses are most active during inter-house games such as soccer and other sports, as well as at the Sports Day at Woodlands Sport Stadium. Students wear their own house's t-shirt during their Physical Education lessons.
