Welcome to Our School
We've put together a short video so that you can see our school and meet our wonderful students and teachers. You can also hear about the ambitious vision of Churchdown from the Headteacher Mr Potter.
Our Talented, ambitious students would like to explain to you about their time in Churchdown. In this video they give a valuable insight into what life is like in Churchdown and how they feel supported and valued to be whatever they want to be in this world.
Here is a short word from Miss Hicks who is the head of year 7. She explains how she has been welcoming the newest students into our school community this year as well as looking out for them everyday.
And finally here is what our incredible teachers have to say about Churchdown School and how they feel their roles directly impact the students education, wellbeing and ambition.

Our aim is simple: we want to be the very best school possible for all the students in our care. We want to be able to say, hand on heart, that our students could not have received a better education in any other school.

Keeping Our Visitors Safe
The safety of our visitors, students and staff is our number one priority, and we are working extremely closely with PHE, and the Department for Education, to ensure the COVID-19 safety requirements are met in order to keep everyone as safe as possible.
- If are able to, we advise parents and children take a lateral flow test before attending the Open Evening.
- We ask that you do not attend the Open Evening or day time tours if you have tested positive for COVID-19 or have any symptoms of COVID-19.
- Face Masks are recommended during the Open Evening as social distancing may not always be possible.
- Please observe social distancing measures where possible whilst moving around the school.
- Please sanitise your hands regularly at the stations provided.

The purpose of the evening is to give all our visitors a really valuable opportunity to see our school, understand what our mission is and meet our incredible staff and students. Our aim is to provide this experience in a safe environment. We look forward to seeing you all on the 22nd.
Please note: We have already started planning an informative and interactive evening for you, but please understand that if COVID restrictions change we will publish on our website what our alternative arrangements will be.
