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.

Prospective Y12 Open Evening

02 Dec 2016

I would like to express my gratitude to our fabulous sixth form students and staff who represented Chenderit School so well at yesterday’s Prospective Y12 Open Evening. Our evening was well attended by Chenderit students and by many other students from the surrounding area: feedback about the quality of our provision and our evening has been very positive. Thank you. We now look forward to receiving applications from prospective students by Friday 13th January 2017.

 Today is the final day of Y11 mock exams. I would like to commend our Y11 students for the way they have engaged so maturely and positively with the whole rehearsal exam experience. We await their results and look forward to feeding back to students and their parents at our Y11 parents’ evening on Tuesday 10th January. Exams for Y12 and Y13 students begin on 5th January 2017.

Over the next two and a half weeks there is much to look forward to, including our Christmas concert on Monday 12th December and, of course, charities’ week. This year we are raising funds for The John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford, in support of Mr Briggs, Mencap and Dogs for Good.
