Our Story

Who We Are

Maitland Christian School is a Prep to Year 12 private school providing Christian education for students, with the purpose of growing their faith, character and abilities. Maitland Christian School draws out the individual students’ strengths that make each student unique. Whether it be in the classroom, sporting field or creative performance our students excel.

The school was established in 1983 by Metford Community Baptist Church and has grown to be a vibrant community of students.

Metford Christian Community School commenced on February 7th, 1983, with 22 students from Kindergarten to Year 6, in one class taught by Mr Ross Collyer. It was a ministry of Metford Community Baptist Church and was located in two houses in Victoria Street, East Maitland.

In 1988, Metford Community Baptist Church purchased property at 75-85 Chelmsford Drive, Metford. Part of the site was used for a retirement village, part was set aside for the school. Mr Garry Couper joined the staff in 1989, as the Year 4/5 teacher. Throughout the early years, Mr Collyer had been the Principal of the school but during 1990, Mr Couper became the Principal.

The school moved to purpose-built premises at Chelmsford Drive in time for the start of the 1991 school year. The first Year 7 class commenced in 1996 and they graduated from Year 10 at at the school in 1999. It wasn’t until 2006 that we had Year 11, with our first Higher School Certificate class graduating in 2007.

The school changed its name to Maitland Christian School in 1998 and it has grown to house a double streamed Kindergarten to Year 12. In 2014, a Prep class was added to provide transition to Kindergarten for children commencing school the following year.
