Welcome to Richard Challoner School
Richard Challoner is a highly successful Catholic comprehensive school for boys aged 11-18, and girls aged 16-18, which has been serving the local Catholic community since 1959.
The school is a DfE designated Academy with Specialisms in Technology and Sports. It is heavily oversubscribed, with four applicants for each place available. The school continues to grow and now has 1000 students on roll, including 260 in the Sixth Form, which is federated with Holy Cross School in New Malden.
At the heart of the school is its distinctive Catholic Ethos, which in turn is supported by the excellent relationships which exist between the staff and the students. A shared vision for the school is supported by the staff, students, parents and governors, which has created a very strong caring and cohesive community based on the Christian values of love, respect and compassion for others.
Richard Challoner School Sixth Form offers a wide and varied programme of study, meeting the needs of all our students in a caring Catholic environment that embraces tradition with innovation.
We seek to offer a high quality of education in a Catholic learning environment in which each person is recognised as a Child of God. Students are encouraged to develop their talents and a sense of worth in faith, hope and love for God and in respect for one another.
At Challoner we place a lot of emphasis on creating personal relationships. A key ingredient in this is the mentoring system. Each student is assigned a mentor to be their personal guide and coach through their two years in our Sixth Form.
Each student will meet their mentor for a one-on-one conversation approximately every six weeks to discuss their academic progress, goals and aspirations, UCAS application, work experience, study skills, further reading and even their social life!
Your mentor is your first port of call if you have any worries or concerns. A strong mentor/student relationship makes Sixth Form life much easier!
