Chenderit school was founded in 1979 to serve the villages of south Northamptonshire and has grown since then into a popular and successful school. As an 11 to 18 comprehensive school, and an academy since March 2012, Chenderit accepts every student who lives in our catchment area. Each year a number of students join us from schools in Oxfordshire and elsewhere, in particular joining our highly successful sixth form, which is largely housed in new, purpose-built accommodation, teaching rooms and lecture theatre.
Chenderit was inspected in May 2011 and judged to be outstanding. As one parent told the inspection team: 'I have been incredibly impressed by the whole Chenderit experience and cannot praise the school enough. It is an excellent school full of staff top to bottom who obviously care deeply.' The inspectors found that the curriculum, the sixth form, care and guidance, and student achievement, in particular, were outstanding.
We are an ambitious school, constantly striving to improve the experience we offer our students. Since it first opened the school has had a strong tradition of excellence in the arts showcased in the Michael Heseltine Gallery.
We believe that a successful school is at the heart of a vibrant learning community, a web of connections that combine to create outstanding results. Having read about the school on our website, should you wish to find out more, do not hesitate to contact us.

It was very exciting to be working with so many students at the Easter School. About 100 of you came for extra lessons in English, Science, Mathematics, Technology, History, Geography and more.
Thanks to all parents and students and teachers who are gave up their time to offer extra progress opportunities.
I think it was successful because students volunteered to attend with their attitudes fixed on success, their uniform signalling they were ready for business and their aspirations high. We applaud you all.
I must add my huge thanks to the many staff who are gave up their time because they wanted to leave 'no stone unturned' in the enhancement of students' life chances.
As a reminder, in addition to regular classroom teaching we are running:
1. exam practices
2. revision classes
3. intervention groups
4. before school classes
5. assembly masterclasses
6. motivational assemblies
7. Easter School lessons
8. online learning
9. parental support evenings
10. pre-exam Sunday School classes
11. half term break masterclasses
We are so pleased with the positive attitudes we see.
Remember that all anyone can ask is that you try your best. All your teachers are here to support you. Effort, self belief and a determination to be the best you can be are key.
Please do not hesitate to ask any of us for the help you need.
