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.

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.
