The Cherwell School is a high performing and oversubscribed comprehensive school in Oxford (1890 students on roll, including 540 in the Sixth Form).  We achieved GCSE progress results in the top 10% of all schools in 2016.  We are pleased that we hold an ‘Outstanding’ rating by Ofsted as we feel this is a fair reflection of the school, not least as we recognise that we have the capacity to develop and improve further.  We consider ourselves to be ‘A Centre of Opportunity’ and we aim to make this a deeper reality for all of our students and staff in the years to come.  Our aims are supported by our designation as a National Teaching School and by a number of school awards including Investors in People certification, the International Schools Award and the Inclusion Quality Mark.  We are committed to the professional learning and career development of our staff and are a School Centred Initial Teacher Training provider as well as a lead National Teaching School within the Oxfordshire Teaching Schools Alliance.  We take a lead role in the initial training and professional development of teachers and support staff, and work with other schools to contribute to the raising of standards.

You will do this by planning activities and games and using photos, travel guides and maps as well as texts from newspapers or the Internet.
