Channing School – Overview

Channing is an independent school for girls aged 4-18 in Highgate, North London. A centre of academic excellence, we inspire our pupils to develop scholarship, integrity, altruism and independence. Channing School is unique in providing an education based on the principles of two Unitarian sisters who, more than 130 years ago, founded a school for girls in Highgate, North London.

In a changing world of uncertainty and pressure, girls find at Channing an oasis of calm purpose, where pupils are encouraged to think for themselves and to keep an open mind. Their academic results are among the best in the country and their most recent Independent School’s Inspectorate (ISI) awarded Channing the highest possible ratings in all categories, concluding that ‘The quality of pupils’ achievements and learning is exceptional’.

Each girl is treated as an individual and valued for her achievements and efforts, whether they be sporting, musical, theatrical, intellectual, spiritual or academic…or none of the above. Sometimes the greatest lessons are learned from the kindness of others and we recognise and encourage this, too.
