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.

The Cherwell School celebrates excellent A level results!

  •  Number of A level candidates -251        
  • % Passes A* and A - 38.3%    
  • % Passes A* to B - 65.5%
  • % Passes A*- C - 86.2% 
  • % Passes A* to E - 98.6%     

We are delighted with these A level results which are in line with our best ever performance. So much of this is down to the hard work and determination of students and staff, alongside the invaluable support of parents and carers. We are especially pleased with our % passes at A*-A  and A*-B which are both records for Cherwell.  Along with the overall headline figures shown above well over half of the year group achieved at least one A* or A grade.

As one of the largest and most successful state funded school Sixth Forms in the country it is fantastic to see so many students having done well right across the ability range This cohort was made up of over 250 students and I am so pleased for them and for their teachers

With results like these our students are very well placed to take up their places at universities or their career paths in line with their intentions; they were a wonderful year group, contributed so much to the school and have deserved their success.
