About the School

Dr Challoner’s High School attempt to provide the best possible education for girls. Staff are passionate about the breadth of aspiration and opportunity, and ensure that all girls are empowered with the skills, habits and attributes needed to thrive in the 21st Century and to contribute significantly to the world.

A leading selective grammar school for girls, Challoner’s High has a strong tradition of academic excellence, consistently placing in the top 50 in state school examination league tables. Judged by Ofsted as ‘Outstanding’ in 2012 Dr Challoner’s High School subsequently became only the ninth school in the country to gain the Exceptional Schools Award in July 2014. Nearly all of students choose to go to university, with most going to Russell Group institutions, including Oxford and Cambridge.

Beliefs so often shape reality. For decades school values have led to a supportive, joyful and intellectually ambitious education. Staff believe that girls learn best when all are valued, inspired, curious and happy. They believe that all girls, whether naturally quiet or gregarious, can become confident, resilient and courageous; free to follow their own paths; discover their own passions and achieve their personal bests.

Therefore, at the heart of the school is a tightly-knit and highly purposeful community of students and teachers – a warm-hearted community characterised by compassion, commitment and a strong instinct for the fun, creative and clever.

An infectious vibrancy and a generosity of spirit underpin Dr Challoner’s High School as a ‘home from home’ for 1290 girls aged between 11 and 18. All girls have the potential to help shape the world over the coming decades and it is Dr Challoner’s High School mission to provide them with the best possible preparation, whilst also daily recognising that learning is inherently joyful.
