Dr Challoner's Grammar School is a selective grammar school for boys in Amersham, Buckinghamshire.
Dr Challoner's has built a reputation as one of the leading boys' grammar schools in the country. Our students' results at GCSE and A Level are outstanding, placing Challoner's consistently among the top 50 state schools in Britain. Almost all our students move on to further study at university level and around 20 boys each year are offered places to continue their education at Oxford and Cambridge. The school is the holder of a large number of awards and special recognition from a range of national bodies and was one of the first OFSTED 'outstanding' schools to convert to academy status.
Although Dr Challonerâ€™s is a school with an outstanding reputation for achievement, thereâ€™s a lot more to DCGS than people sometimes think. We want the young men who leave us to be kind and caring, confident in what they can achieve and equipped with a keen sense of the world around them; happy in themselves and able to share an optimistic outlook with others. In order to achieve this we have created a friendly and caring environment, rich in learning opportunities, so that boys can flourish and mature into talented, modest and committed young adults.
The school has developed a set of principles which guides the way we go about our business of achieving our goal of 'Excellence with Integrity' for all.
