WHY AN ALL-THROUGH EDUCATION WORKS AT BISHOP CHALLONER
Bishop Challoner, a Catholic co-educational independent school in Shortlands, offers the entire educational journey for pupils aged from 3 to 18, with excellent retention levels from junior to senior school.
In such a positive learning environment, high standards and expectations are set at every level. Staff work closely with the pupils within one establishment, ensuring a successful transition between the different stages in their education. Pupils are able to be challenged, take risks and feel comfortable through consistent, well-planned teaching by staff who know them. We are able to track and monitor their progress and provide on-going support to ensure each pupil reaches their full potential.
In Bishop Challoner’s all-through school, high quality relationships exist between staff and pupils, embodying mutual respect, care, freedom to communicate and support in a school with a strong caring ethos. We encourage pupil interaction through collaborative activities across the stages and providing opportunity for sixth form students to take responsibility for younger children as role models. This enables them to relate well to others and allows them to observe patterns of behaviour to which they can aspire. Our excellent pastoral care and discipline allows the pupils to be nurtured, enabling qualities of trust, empathy and resilience to develop.
The well established Bishop Challoner Able Gifted and Talented programme spans both the junior and senior schools, accommodating a wider breadth of activities for the Gifted and Talented pupils. Whole school activities involve fund-raising events and House activities from nursery through to sixth form.
Our seamless journey form nursery to sixth form is a special one and something that is unique to Bishop Challoner. Our family community is something you will experience when you visit us.
