Bishop Challoner Catholic Collegiate Girls' School
We are a vibrant, friendly and diverse community in the heart of the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.
Our school offers state-of-the-art facilities, a rigorous and academic curriculum and outstanding teaching and learning opportunities, all of which contributed to our excellent examination results.
As a Catholic school, we firmly put Jesus Christ at the centre of all we do and endeavour to live out the gospel values of love, justice, peace, mercy, forgiveness and truth in our daily interactions with one another. These values are modelled by pupils and staff and have helped to create a peaceful, inclusive learning environment.Our most recent OFSTED report is outstanding and is evidence that your daughter will flourish whilst in our care.
We are fully committed to securing outstanding academic outcomes for all our pupils and believe enrichment opportunities help to achieve this. We have welcomed guest speakers such as the poet Benjamin Zephaniah, politician Nick Clegg and the actress Joanna Lumley. We also enjoy fruitful partnerships with organisations such as Ogilvy Marketing and Allen and Overy Law firm to help raise aspirations and develop vision for the future within our school.
We aim to make school an enjoyable, challenging, life-changing experience where all girls are provided with the opportunity to flourish academically, spiritually and emotionally.
This rich, holistic approach to the development of the whole child means all pupils leave our school confident and with a greater appreciation and awareness of the World in which they live.
Our girls with goals campaign provides the opportunity for all girls to realise their potential by recognising their unique gifts and talents through a combination of mentoring and extra-curricular activities.
We are confident that your daughter will succeed whilst here at Bishop Challoner and we look forward to partnering with you as together, we work closely to achieve this.
As well as academic excellence, Bishop Challoner provides students with so much more in meeting the challenges of modern life. We believe our school uniquely offers the following benefits. To begin with, we would stress our Catholicity. Although we have a multi-national and multi-cultural intake, we are a Catholic school with a Catholic ethos. The predominant aim of Bishop Challoner is to provide a genuine Catholic education through which all may come to recognise the dignity of the person and the basic equality of all people.
We strive to educate boys and girls to be independent and responsible adults who are aware both of their rights and of their responsibilities. We teach our students how to make a positive contribution to the communities in which they live and participate. We help them to achieve the maximum academic success of which they are capable.
We encourage them to play a part in caring for others who are less fortunate than they are. By the time they leave our school we want them to care for their world, their environment - God’s creation, to be socially well-adjusted - a living embodiment of loving thy neighbour and being loved in return.
Our comprehensive support and counselling team offering help and advice to meet a student’s personal and spiritual needs and all parents can be confident that, at Bishop Challoner, every child matters.
