Why Choose Us 


    Welcome to Chipping Norton School.

    At Chipping Norton School we put the individual at the heart of what we do. Everyone is encouraged to be the best that they can be. Staff and students share the same values of excellence, respect, tolerance, enjoyment and commitment.


    "What we love about Chipping Norton School is that people are valued above all else" (Parent of year 8 student)

    Our vision is for vibrant and inspirational teaching that raises aspiration, challenges, engages and prepares every member of the school for life. Our vision is a school where learners are motivated and inspired; where curiosity is sparked; and where we strive to be the best that we can be.

    Our facilities are outstanding. The classrooms are bright and spacious, with internet access and data projectors, and arranged by subject. With our experienced and specialist staff, we provide high quality learning in high quality surroundings to ensure students are fully prepared for the challenges of the twenty first century.  We are adjacent to the Leisure Centre with access to the sports hall, swimming pool, dance studio, fitness suite and multi-use games area. These facilities, used by our students during lessons and beyond the school day, make us the envy of others.

    “The enthusiasm of the staff for their subject is infectious.” (Parent of year 9 student)

    Our students, our staff, our facilities and the wealth of opportunities make Chipping Norton School an exciting place in which to learn. I have been headteacher for ten years and I am very proud of the standard of education we offer. Please contact the school and arrange a visit to see for yourself. I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you personally.
