WELCOME TO CHIPPING NORTON SCHOOL
At Chipping Norton School we are all committed to the brightest possible futures for all our pupils. My colleagues and I have committed our professional lives to the fulfilment of each learner’s potential during their seven years at our wonderful school. I am deeply aware of and excited by the deep-rooted sense of community that exists within and around our community. This is a good and great school on a journey of its own to being one of the very best providers of education in this region and beyond. At all times, every one of us is a learner and we embrace our unknown potential and desire to be even better tomorrow than we are today. I hope you will take the time to explore this website to gain a deeper understanding of how and why this school means so much, to so many.

Joining Sixth Form
Chipping Norton Sixth Form is an exciting place to begin the next stage of your academic career. Our central aim is to “Enjoy and Achieve”. This year’s A level results placed us within the top 15% of schools nationally and in our most recent Ofsted report we were judged as ‘Outstanding’.
Students have the luxury of their own facilities, allowing them to study independently in a variety of learning environments. We have a strong sense of community, which provides additional support for students throughout their two years of study and allows them to develop friendships that last a life time.
We said a fond (if rather premature) farewell to our wonderful Year 11 and Year 13 students on Friday March 20th. We look forward to seeing you all again for a more traditional celebration to mark your fantastic contribution to our school community when the school reopens. Well done to all the tutors, HOYs and […]Read More
