Welcome to The Cherwell School

It is a great pleasure to welcome you to The Cherwell SchoolA Centre of Opportunity. We invite you to get to know us.  We have all the advantages of being a large school in that we offer a very wide range of curricular and extracurricular opportunities. However, our two sites enable us to create smaller and more personal units within the whole school. This makes it easier to know, support and value each student; in this school each individual matters to us.
