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.
We know that you can only make an informed decision about a school if you see it in action on a normal school day. All parents are invited to tour the school with the Headteacher, Mr Potter. The open mornings will include a talk from Mr Potter as he explains the school's ethos and mission statement and why Churchdown is one of the leading schools in the country. The morning will also include speaking with some of our students as they give a personal insight into life at Churchdown. Throughout the tour there are valuable opportunities to ask any questions you may have and to see the school in action.
We have gone to great length to ensure your visit to our school is a safe one in this current situation. If you would like to discuss the safety measures we have put in place please contact Mrs Tilley on the number below.
Each morning will start at 8.45am or 9.45am. The tours begin on Monday 21st September and conclude on Wednesday 21st October. These are only bookable for one adult and one child per household. To arrange a tour please telephone the Headteacher's PA Mrs Jacqueline Tilley on 01452 713340 ext 224
Our staff and students look forward to meeting you.
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.
Information regarding admission to Churchdown School Academy
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.
