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.

Keep In Touch

14 Oct 2020

Since 20th March, we have been sending home a weekly bulletin to parents and carers.

 Initially, the purpose of our publication, ‘Keep In Touch’ (KIT), was to celebrate our students’ achievements of the past week and to motivate our students during the period that they were to be working from home. We published lots of good news stories along with examples of students’ work, photographs of students working hard at home, their drawings, poems, and, in fact, anything that we thought might inspire others during those initial testing times.

 KIT was so well received during the spring and summer terms that we decided we should keep its weekly format for this school year, rather than revert to a bumper edition that used to be sent out three time each year. KIT is sent home each Friday via email and we hope you enjoy reading about what we are doing in school.  If you have missed any back editions, you can find them at: http://www.chenderit.northants.sch.uk/newsletters.asp

 I wonder how many parents and carers have memory boxes to hand to their children in future years and whether the editions that mention your children or show case their work are being kept for posterity!
