Headteacher's Welcome

At Chenderit School we have established a strong and supportive community where staff and students strive to "Aim High, Work Hard and Be Nice". Our students are valued as individuals and are actively encouraged to pursue excellence, not only academically, but in all other spheres of school life. Our aim is to unlock each student's potential and to celebrate every individual's progress and achievements.

Chenderit School is a forward looking school with proud traditions. We encourage our students to embrace all opportunities at school and, through these, to develop into increasingly resilient, independent, adaptable, respectful and resourceful learners. We have high expectations of our school community and pride ourselves on our safe, supportive yet challenging environment in which students are able to enjoy, flourish and achieve.

 I hope you find the information you are looking for on our website and that it gives you a flavour of what is unique and special about our school. If you are considering whether Chenderit School is the right school for your child, please contact us for more information or, better still, arrange a visit to meet our staff and students and to experience our welcoming atmosphere, our sense of purpose and the wide variety of opportunities that Chenderit has to offer.

BBC News School report day

17 Mar 2017

On Thursday 16th March, Year 8 took part in the national BBC News School report day for the third year. Students were given the opportunity to be journalists, editors, script writers, runners and producers. The year group made a film of national and local news. Each tutor group also made a newspaper and our winners will be announced next week. In the meantime, the footage from the day can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=St4APJwxiiA

Students interviewed Grace about her courageous fundraising plans. Grace is having her hair cut to support the Little Princess Trust, a charity which provides real hair wigs free of charge to boys and girls across the UK and Ireland that have sadly lost their own hair due to cancer treatment and other illnesses. We commend Grace for her kindness and generosity.
