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.

Chenderit would like to extend its deepest condolences on the news of the passing of HRH, The Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip.

 Mr Hindley has received the following message from the Duke of Edinburgh's Award scheme which he has asked to be shared:

 "The Duke had a lifelong commitment to inspiring, empowering and developing young people, and in setting up The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, he has helped transform the lives of millions of young people worldwide.

In the 65 years since His Royal Highness founded the charity, the need for the DofE has never been greater, with young people facing unprecedented challenges and an uncertain future due to COVID-19.

The DofE will continue the remarkable legacy of His Royal Highness, working to make sure that all young people – and especially those from marginalised groups – can benefit from the better educational outcomes, employment prospects, community ties and stronger mental health the DofE can help support."

Chenderit Silver and Gold applicants - more information about this summer's expeditions will be shared over the coming weeks. As restrictions ease, and temperatures rise, what a moment to remember the world's longest serving consort.
