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.

Year 7's and 8's visit to Manchester City Football Academy

31 year 7 and 8 students were given the opportunity to experience what it is like to be a professional footballer at the Manchester City Football academy.

They had three excellent training sessions followed by a game with a local football team. Students also had a great morning bowling and visiting the National Football Museum.

It was a great opportunity and experience for all students.

We are delighted to report a superb performance from students at Cherwell. The levels of progress achieved by different individuals, groups of students and subject areas range from excellent to genuinely remarkable in some areas.  We are so pleased because this has meant that so many of our students have been able to go onto to do the things which they hoped to do be it sixth form, college or the world of work.
