'Challoner has given me the motivation to get out of bed because of its inspirational teachers, great camaraderie, interesting approach to the curriculum and strength of faith in god. These have enable me to develop myself as an individual well equipped to face future challenges. Bishop Challoner has enabled me to realise that self-motivation is the key to success. Whatever that success might be whether in my future career or my personal life.'- Head Pupil
