The Cherwell School is a high performing and oversubscribed comprehensive school in Oxford (approximately 2,000 students on roll, including 680 in the Sixth Form). We are delighted that we were judged ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted (October 2022), as we feel this is a fair reflection of the school, not least as we recognize that we have the capacity to develop and improve further. We consider ourselves to be a school which has at its heart “opportunity, responsibility, excellence” and we aim to make this a deeper reality for all of our students and staff in the years to come.
