Challney High School for Girls is an 11-16 Academy in North West Luton.
The School’s vision is to develop influential women of the future by equipping every student to be a successful learner, confident individual and responsible citizen so that she has the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values to lead a fulfilling and successful life in a demanding and fast changing world: a world that she will play a key role in shaping.
Students are exposed to a range of experiences both inside and outside of the classroom that enable them to achieve their potential and are expected to have high expectations for themselves both academically and in their behaviour. The School has a particular focus on Science and the STEM subjects which has led to a number of co-curricular and extra-curricular opportunities for students.
The Challney Girls ethos is summarised by a shared passionate belief that there is ‘no ceiling on potential’ and they are committed to developing their students to become rigorous, rounded and grounded with not only skills and knowledge, but also the key behaviours and attitudes that provide personal resilience.
The School aims to instil the values of caring, compassion and kindness and the girls are encouraged to develop a strong sense of moral integrity and responsibility to those less fortunate. These values are reflected in the very active fundraising which takes place throughout the year.
Teachers provide challenging, inspirational and engaging lessons that foster a love of learning and the School routinely invests in new technologies that support learning and prepare students for living in an increasingly technological world.
