The root of formation is faith and so Middleton Grange not only provides a first rate general education but also biblically based teaching in the Christian faith.

It is about forming the pupil to be the person God created them to be. All of this is summed up in the school motto: Character, Excellence, Service for the Glory of God.

The Christian School Network has been in existence for over ten years.

They recognised opportunities to share successful teaching practice, curriculum development initiatives across a wide spectrum of school operations as well as cooperatively strengthening their special Christian Character. They recognised that their ability to serve students and families was greatly enhanced by working together in a close and trusting relationship. The success of the network has seen other schools wanting to join in. Early in the piece Rangiora New Life School became part of the network. The schools joined together to support the genesis of Ashburton Christian School and also culminated in the start up of a brand new school in Rolleston in 2015. The schools have developed interlocking enrolment schools which assists in providing transparent pathways in Christian education from new entrant through to Year 13. A further strength has been a cooperative engagement with the Ministry of Education who have been pivotal in assisting the networks successful development.
