We are an 11-18, non-selective academy where everyone, staff and students, strive to be the best they can be. Our aim is simple ‘to achieve success for all’. We are proud of our warm and welcoming community in which everyone participates to make a positive contribution. The language spoken is about aiming to be the best we can be. Teachers are unrelenting and ensure there are no limits or barriers to student achievement. Students enjoy their school lives and are proud of their school. Every decision we make has the students’ best interests at the core.
Expectations are high and our students’ approach to the community and learning is fantastic. At Churchdown the small things matter and it is these marginal gains that impact on the holistic educational experience on offer. We encourage participation in a wide range of educational and life enriching activities, finding a variety of ways to celebrate success and individuality. By the time students finish their education with us, they will have been challenged academically and nurtured into fine young adults.
Our mission is to be a school where student development and learning are at the centre of everything we do.
Students are expected to strive for personal excellence and demonstrate a commitment to learning as they fulfil their potential. Our community is a nurturing and caring one where students are encouraged to show compassion, friendship and support towards one another.
We aim to provide an education which is fully inclusive, where every child is valued for who they are and who they can become.
At Churchdown School the education we provide is guided by values of integrity, resilience, respect, ambition and tolerance. These values are particularly important to us as we develop the students into lifelong learners and prepare them for a life beyond school.
