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.

Transition week

18 Jun 2019

All Y6 students who will be joining us in September will complete a 4 day Transition Week between Tuesday 18th and Friday 21st June.

This week we welcome our new Y7 (current Y6) students to Chenderit. They have made an impressive start and we look forward to them joining us in September. For the remainder of the week, students from within the Chenderit Cluster will be able to travel on the school buses without a bus pass for this week only and they must wear their primary school uniform. Students from Banbury and beyond the Chenderit catchment will need to make their own travel arrangements.

Students will need to bring with them:

- A sample of writing in the provided plastic folder
- Trainers for PE;
- Pens, pencils, rubbers, rulers, etc;
- A reading book;
- A rough note book and
- Something to eat and drink during the day.

We are all looking forward to working with you over the next 5 - 7 years and we hope the students’ time at Chenderit will be both happy and successful.
