Welcome from the Headmistress

Channing School is unique in providing an education based on the Unitarian principles of two sisters who, in 1885, founded a school for girls in Highgate, North London.

In a changing world of uncertainty and pressure, girls find at Channing an oasis of calm purpose, where pupils of all ages are encouraged to think for themselves and to keep an open mind. Every member of the School belongs to a warm, supportive community. We sincerely hope that you will be able to visit us. Many visitors comment on the indefinable ‘feel’ of the School, its very special atmosphere and unique ethos.

The following pages explain which we are so different compared to other schools in the area and as such why we are unique.
This website can only paint a picture: the people will tell you the full story! I look forward to welcoming you to Channing.
