Information about the school – Dr Challoner’s High School

Dr Challoner’s High School is a larger-than-average selective school for girls. About three quarters of girls are White British, with a small number of Indian and other ethnic groups; a tenth speak English as an additional language, though all are fluent in English. The school is heavily oversubscribed and the student population is stable. The proportion of disabled students and those with special educational needs is very low, as is the proportion supported by school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs. The proportion of students known to be eligible for free school meals is far lower than usual. The school meets the current floor standard set by the government, which determines the minimum expectations for students’ attainment and progress.

The school has recently converted to academy status. At the time of the inspection, no lessons could be observed in Years 11, 12 or 13 because all students had started their GCSE, AS and A Level study leave. The current headteacher commenced his position in September 2011.
