We educate, we enrich, we enable

 Dr Challoner's High is an exceptional school that builds good character and pursues quality without flinching.  We ensure that Challoner's girls are empowered with the skills, habits and attributes needed to thrive in the twenty-first century so that they may make significant contributions to society.

Challoner's has a strong tradition of academic excellence, usually placing in the top 50 in state school examination league tables.  We promote excellence in all endeavours whilst developing young people with big hearts and well-rounded characters.  In a fast changing world, traditional values of honesty, courtesy, courage, respect, hard work and generosity of spirit are as important now as ever.  Close behind academic excellence therefore is deep-enrichment in all its forms.

Our girls have the potential to help shape the coming decades and it is our mission to provide them with the best possible preparation, whilst also daily recognising that learning is inherently joyful.

Message from the Head Girl

I am so excited to be representing this incredible Head Girl Team, as Challoner’s 52nd Head Girl.

This school has always been such a supportive and inspiring environment, and I really hope to contribute and encourage this passion for all aspects of school life.

I also have an incredible team working alongside me, all of whom have such passion and enthusiasm for the school and our contribution to it.

Over the next year, I aim to help encourage fundraising and development of The Challoner's Foundation through the use of new events and appeals, as ultimately, I feel it the responsibility of every member of our community to help to ensure this school remains at its current exceptional standard.

But most importantly, I wish to encourage further the fun, knowledge-loving environment for which Challoner’s has become so well known.

As Audrey Hepburn said ‘the most important thing is to enjoy your life…to be happy…that’s all that matters’ and I think this is something that is so well demonstrated by our school, and a philosophy that I wish to continue to promote.
