Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to Bishop Challoner School. We are a highly successful and ambitious school, however, above all else Bishop Challoner is a warm and welcoming community where each member is embraced and encouraged to flourish and achieve.

We are immensely proud of Bishop Challoner and what we represent and stand for. We are committed to providing an environment in which all students are challenged to be the best they can be, and one in which pastoral care and wellbeing underpin academic and co-curricular excellence. This rings true in the school’s motto - ‘Dare to do your best’.

We believe in providing an education for life and we seek to ensure that the learning experience at our school blends the best of tradition with the exciting opportunities provided by developing new skills and aptitude for an ever-changing world. Learning how to learn is a key facet of our education philosophy and is an essential need for the twenty-first century.

We believe that a truly excellent school is about more than academic achievement alone: it is about developing a real passion for learning; a capacity for independent and critical thinking; self-awareness and resilience; self-confidence without arrogance and genuine interests that extend beyond the classroom walls.

At Bishop Challoner we focus on developing the whole person, aiming to ensure that each student leaves us ready for the challenges of life at university or the world of work, and understanding their responsibilities towards others.

We want our students to leave Bishop Challoner well equipped to engage positively with a rapidly changing world as accomplished problem solvers and confident individuals with a clear appreciation of and respect for the views and potential of others.
