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.

This week we celebrate a new group of Ambassador Students who have been appointed in Year 12.

All ambassadors have undergone a formal selection process and their new roles are highlighted in the newsletter.

Ambassadors – what will your first 100 days plan look like? What will you do that will make a difference and have lasting impact on our school?

We are looking forward to working with these dedicated students over the coming year and to seeing what each ambassador will achieve during their tenure. Many former students have left a clear legacy to our school - what will yours be?

We thank all current Y13 ambassadors for their hard work and commitment to their roles over the past 12 months. To those who have been the ‘face of Chenderit’ such as through our prestigious open evenings or through their guided tours for visitors to our school, we commend and thank you. We couldn’t have done our jobs so well without you.
