Channing Community

At Channing, we are famed for our unfailingly supportive ‘family’ of pupils, staff and alumnae. Everyone in the Channing community is valued equally for their contribution to our School and pupils regularly mention their feeling of comfort and security with everyone from our catering staff to the School Nurse.

Ever since its foundation in 1885, Channing has been known as a warm and flourishing community. Though large enough to ensure academic rigour and excellent facilities, our size gives pupils both security and a sense of their own significance. We recognize all achievements and hope that each girl here knows she is valued as an individual. Our strong family tradition is complemented by a well-founded parents’ association.

To maintain our happy and purposeful atmosphere, we emphasise concern and respect for the needs of others. As such, we see our role in the wider community as incredibly important, embracing causes affecting both the local area and further afield. Whether it’s cake sales raising money for our nominated School Charity, helping out at the local branch of Oxfam or working at The Harrington Scheme, everyone in the Channing community will gain first-hand experience of the joy in helping others.

Chatting with Channing

Listen to our interview with our Year 13 Charity Officers, Eliza and Hannah, from our podcast ‘Chatting with Channing‘. 

They’ll talk us through what the role of Charity Officer entails, why charity is so important at Channing School and what other support they provide at the school. But we’ll also get to hear about the upcoming events they have planned, as well as some advice Eliza and Hannah would give to younger pupils interested in charity work.
