We are a happy and friendly school. We welcome students from all backgrounds and, being multi-cultural, there are 73 languages spoken in the school of over 1,500 students.

As a Federated school, we are continually successful at producing high-level public examination results. We have received a range of awards – Artsmark, Sportsmark, Extended School and School Achievement.

In 2007 we achieved Sports College Status in recognition of the importance we attach to sport and the school’s many sporting achievements. Our Ofsted report was very good and this means your son is likely to achieve better at Bishop Challoner than at another school.

Any student joining Bishop Challoner has the opportunity to reach his fullest potential and go on after five years to succeed in further and higher education and ultimately in a chosen career.
