It is a great pleasure to welcome you to The Cherwell School, ‘A 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.
We have high expectations of our students and our central aim is to enable each of them to achieve success in whatever they undertake, by making the most of the opportunities available to them. We want them to be happy, to aim high, to be lifelong learners and to be responsible citizens; the School Aims, which can be found on the website, provide further detail on our vision for our school community – to be A Centre of Opportunity for the Person, the Community and the Future.
Our aims are further supported by our status as a National Teaching School; we take a lead role in the professional development of teachers and support staff and work with other schools to contribute to the raising of standards. We also have a specialism in Science and Mathematics and hold Investors in People certification, the International Schools Award, and the Inclusion Quality Mark. These awards continue to help us to raise standards even further across the whole curriculum and to develop our facilities for the benefit of our school and of the local community.
If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact us. We want to help you to make the right choice of school for your son or daughter.
