Head PhotoFounded in 1885, Channing is a day school for girls aged 4-18, approximately 420 in the Senior School (Sixth Form 80 girls) and 185 in Fairseat, the Junior School. It is situated in Highgate Village, in extensive and attractive grounds and offers a balanced education combining a traditional academic curriculum with modern educational developments. The complex of old and new buildings has been constantly adapted to provide up-to-date facilities, and there are strong links with the local community. There is a dedicated Sixth Form area, a large Art-Design Studio, a Lecture Theatre, and an enlarged fully automated Library. Computers are widely used throughout the school. Recent developments include refurbishment of the Music and Science departments, a new Humanities block, fully equipped multi-gym, theatre style seating and further extension of excellent IT facilities.

Entry is by test and interview at 4, 11 and 16, and is subject to a satisfactory report from the entrant’s school, and there are occasional vacancies. Forms and teaching groups are limited in size to allow for close working relationships between girls and staff. Every girl follows a core curriculum in line with the National Curriculum, with plenty of opportunities to develop strengths in Classics, Modern Languages, Music, Art/Design and Drama. Option blocks for GCSE and Advanced Level are designed according to the current needs of each year group. Channing has a tradition of very supportive pastoral care, combined with increasingly impressive achievements.

In accordance with Channing's Unitarian foundation, the religious teaching is of a liberal character. Girls attend Religious Education lessons and morning assembly. The Physical Education curriculum covers a wide variety of sports, and many girls take part in the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme. Young Enterprise flourishes in the Sixth Form, and members of the Senior Orchestra combine with Highgate School for a major orchestral concert and choral concert each year. Every girl undertakes Community Service and there are wide opportunities for work experience in the Sixth Form. There is a wide range of trips on offer, including New York, Barbados, Paris, Venice, Budapest and Montreal, as well as residential trips in the UK.
