Carmel Christian School, Bristol
|Ages||–3 - 18|
|Website||Carmel Christian School|
Carmel Christian School is an independent school in Brislington, Bristol, England founded in 2000. It has a Christian basis, and provides an all-through education, encompassing pre-school and secondary school. The Bible College (for those aged 16+) and a Leadership Academy are not part of the School but are part of the same ministry of Carmel.
The latest ofsted report in November 2012 awarded the school an overall rating of good, with outstanding for pupil behaviour.
The school was featured in a Channel 4 Dispatches documentary entitled "In God's Name" as an example of a new breed of fundamentalist Christian schools brought in following the schooling reforms under the Premiership of Tony Blair. The school uses the Accelerated Christian Education curriculum which teaches creationism as scientific fact.
