The School

Ever since its foundation in 1885, Channing has been known as a happy and successful community.  Our ethos and setting give pupils both security and a sense of their own significance: we recognise all achievements, of whatever nature, and hope each girl here knows she is valued as an individual.  We aim to encourage scholarship, integrity, altruism and independence; to give girls the confidence, qualifications and skills they will need in life; and to send our leavers out ready to respond as thoughtful, responsible and socially aware adults to the challenges of the world today. 
We remain true to the ideals of our Unitarian foundation, to develop spiritual sensitivity and understanding and in particular to foster respect and consideration for the whole range of human faiths and beliefs.

Academic achievement
Academic results are excellent – GCSE and A Level results consistently place us amongst the top 50 schools in the UK and top 20 in London.  Virtually all our sixth formers go on to University, or to Art College, some after a gap year. Girls also excel in a very wide range of co-curricular and extra curricular activities, and especially in Music, Drama, Sport and Art.
Community spirit
The Head and members of staff know every girl personally and as an individual.  We have a strong family tradition and an enthusiastic and supportive parents' association.  The atmosphere is calm, focussed and purposeful. We set high standards emphasising concern and respect for the needs of others. A major feature of the school is the huge diversity of the extracurricular activities on offer to pupils and it is expected that all staff will contribute to this side of the life of the school.  Opportunities exist for involvement in cultural, dramatic, sporting and intellectual pursuits and we like staff to assist in areas where they have a genuine interest and enthusiasm.

Exceptional setting 
The school is in an attractive part of Highgate, with convenient transport links by road and underground.  Visitors are often surprised at how light, green and open our site is.  We have preserved the character of the older buildings, but completely refurbished and redesigned them to provide bright and spacious teaching rooms. Our ambitious £13m building programme, completed in 2017, has provided us with excellent dining facilities, a Music School, a new Sixth Form Centre, Sports Hall with fitness suite and a state-of-the-art Performing Arts Centre.
