Our mission statement below is also our school prayer and is prayed daily by every member of our school community. It is a constant reminder of Christ's presence and influence here, from 1933 to the present day.
Christ at the Centre
Christ at the centre of our lives
Christ at the centre of our school
Following Christ’s example in all that we say and do
This is what Bishop Challoner means by doing ordinary things extraordinarily well


Bishop Challoner Catholic School has a distinctive identity which strives to be a living Catholic family in the heart of Tower Hamlets. 

This is a wonderful school, a vibrant community.  We celebrate our multicultural and diverse identity and one in which every child who enters this school is known and loved. We strive to ensure all our pupils and students enjoy their time at Bishop Challoner and to have a worthwhile educational experience.  We seek to make them feel happy, safe, secure and to grow in God’s love so that when they leave the school they are equipped to cope and deal with the world and make it a better place.  We firmly believe that our parents are the prime educators and that our success is a result of collaboration between parents, school and child working together for the good of the child.

Our parents are encouraged to be fully engaged in their children’s education and there are many opportunities for parents to visit the school and to contribute to their child’s formation and success. 

At the heart of what we are trying to do is to ensure that every single child has the chance to be the best that they can be.
