“Excellent, Wonderful Progressive School”

"> Bishop Challoner is a fantastic school! Both our children (son and daughter) have thoroughly and genuinely enjoyed their time at Bishop Challoner, with my daughter now at University and my son just leaving this academic year. We now find ourselves at the end of an extremely positive and progressive secondary school experience and journey of having had both our children attend Bishop Challoner to complete their GCSE's. This is quite an emotional time for all our family. I cannot find the words to express our gratitude and appreciation of the commitment, professionalism, hard work , dedication and support that the Headteacher and Deputy Headteacher, Head of Year, teaching, support and administrative staff at Bishop Challoner have shown and continue to provide in support (academic, pastoral and otherwise) of our children whilst at Bishop Challoner. We sincerely thank all the staff at Bishop Challoner for their positive contribution to our children's education and lives. Thank you BCS!
“We love it at BCS”

"> I have 3 children in the junior school who are all flourishing and genuinely LOVE school. The values and pastoral care are second to none and with the small class sizes, my children receive the attention they require. Having been with the school for 6 years I have seen many changes - good and bad - and am very pleased with the positive direction the school has taken under the leadership of the new Head. The grounds look wonderful and fill the children with pride in their school, there are more after school activities available and anywhere I go I receive compliments on how well behaved and intelligent my children are; testimony to the well rounded nurturing they receive at BCS.
“Excellent school”

"> Excellent all round school with a family, nurturing feel. Smaller school means all staff know your child and understand them. Excellent transitions at all phases of this through school - nursery to juniors, junior to senior. Very happy with a flourishing, happy child.
“Extremely Impressed”

"> My son and I were extremely impressed with the visit to this school in October. Not only was the school outstanding, it was as described on your website word for word. We found it very comfortable, caring and full of all aspects of an environment to enrich a child in their educational path. The young gentlemen from the sixth form who gave us the tour was of a very very high standard, very knowledgeable, wonderful manners and conducted the whole tour in a clear and professional way. The children we came across during the tour gave a shining example of what is truly inspired for children and young adults to be. I was so very much taken back when I entered a room and the class stood up. I felt humbled at this display of manners and respect.
“Very Good Nurturing School”

"> Excellent school with assessment type of entry. Every child is respected. When we were selecting a school for our oldest child we were looking for a school that offered academic excellence, in a pastorally supportive environment. The school might not look modern but what goes on inside is excellent! No child is left alone; they make sure children are friendly and obedient. Its a good school with Catholic values. Academic depends on both sides. We were happy with the results (2011-2012).

"> Excellent nurturing school. Good for pupils overwhelmed by a large school. Class sizes are around 20-24. A lot of older somewhat stuck in the mud teachers have been cleared out and it is now much more vibrant. My daughter is very happy there.There is a new head recruited from nearby Bromley High and she has made a big impact.
