Chapter Summary

This chapter begins by examining the two faces of the educational and theological controversies. In response to these controversies, this chapter traces 135 women who had graduated from these schools between 1986 and 2003 and analysed their evaluation of the education they had received in these schools within four main themes: the quality of the education; the context of Christian and moral nurture; the quality of relationships among the pupils, with the teachers, and with the wider world; and the preparation received for life after leaving school. Although there were some issues of criticism, the balance of opinion among the former pupils within all four areas was largely supportive of the new independent Christian schools, which were generally perceived as having prepared them well for life. The theology of education remains an under-developed and under-resourced discipline within England and Wale.

Keywords: Christian schools; England; moral nurture; quality of education; quality of relationships; theological controversies; wales
