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.

Careers in Aviation Day at Heathrow

On Thursday 12th November, George Adams, Georgina Craddock, Isabella Dascalescu, Millie Judd, Miah Kirton, Hannah Lingard, Freya Milner, Zoe Mobbs, John Quy and Ella Tarry, escorted by Mrs Marriott, were all invited by British Airways to an Aviation Careers Event at their Headquarters at Waterside Heathrow. The aim of the day was to give students an insight into the opportunities and careers available in aviation. During the course of the day Chenderit students took part in an interactive competition led by engineering graduates with assistance from the BA Environment team. Students were then invited to talk with organisations and internal BA departments about opportunities and careers, speaking face to face with industry experts.

The latter part of the day led to a high security tour of the BA Engineering facility where our students had a tour which included having a look at Concorde. Students were also amongst the first people to set foot on the brand new Dreamliner and A380 aircrafts which BA had just taken delivery of.

The day was an interesting and exciting opportunity for the students who have been given an insight into the world of corporate business and inspired to pursue ambitious careers. The visit was made even more exciting as our students were met by James Claridge who left Chenderit last year and is now working for BA as mixed fleet cabin crew who took a day off to be our guide for the day.
Overall the visit to BA headquarters impressed everyone and was an inspiration to us all.
