Cheney School is a vibrant, exciting place to work and is centrally located in the city of Oxford. We were
rated as “Good” by Ofsted in 2023 and have a very diverse student population, meaning no day is ever
boring! We send students to Oxbridge and Russell Group universities every year and also welcome
students with a range of language and learning support needs: you could be teaching a wide range of
students each day – which is part of the appeal for many staff.

If you are an Early Careers Teacher keen to work in a busy city school, we'd love to speak to you. Please contact Louise Marsh, Deputy Headteacher
