Headteacher's Welcome

At Chenderit School we have established a strong and supportive community where staff and students strive to "Aim High, Work Hard and Be Nice". Our students are valued as individuals and are actively encouraged to pursue excellence, not only academically, but in all other spheres of school life. Our aim is to unlock each student's potential and to celebrate every individual's progress and achievements.

Chenderit School is a forward looking school with proud traditions. We encourage our students to embrace all opportunities at school and, through these, to develop into increasingly resilient, independent, adaptable, respectful and resourceful learners. We have high expectations of our school community and pride ourselves on our safe, supportive yet challenging environment in which students are able to enjoy, flourish and achieve.

 I hope you find the information you are looking for on our website and that it gives you a flavour of what is unique and special about our school. If you are considering whether Chenderit School is the right school for your child, please contact us for more information or, better still, arrange a visit to meet our staff and students and to experience our welcoming atmosphere, our sense of purpose and the wide variety of opportunities that Chenderit has to offer.

Charities Week

10 Dec 2019

At Chenderit it is a tradition that, every December, the Charities Week Committee organises a week of fundraising events in order to raise as much money as we can for both local and national charities. The activities start today and there is a variety of events scheduled to support Rainforest Foundation UK, MacMillan Cancer Support and Mind:

Every year Chenderit students, parents and staff are extremely generous in their donations to raise large amounts of money for our chosen charities. This year, we hope to raise our largest sum to date. To do this we need your help:

- Students will need to pay a minimum donation of 20p for every event they attend and a donation of £1 will be required on Friday 20th December for our non-uniform day
- If parents wish to donate in support our chosen charities this year, they can do this via ParentPay

Also, on Friday 20th December, the last day of term, as a reward for students who have contributed well to the Chenderit community this year, we are stage our Extravaganza – this is a show organised and led by sixth form students for all year groups. I thank our sixth form students in particular, for their leadership and their contributions during charities week, as well as all students who will perform in the show on Friday 20th.
