Welcome from the Headmistress

In the current situation, the Junior and Senior Schools are open for designated year groups and the daughters of Channing Key Workers. At the same time, we are continuing to run a comprehensive programme of Remote Learning for pupils at home in both Junior and the Senior School. You can find details on the Junior and Senior School Remote Learning pages.

For all our prospective pupils and parents, we are delighted to invite you to our new Virtual Open Days.

We look forward to seeing you all, in person, very soon.

In the meantime, let me introduce you to Channing….

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.
