Work with Us

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.

"Cheney School is extremely supportive and friendly and the more experienced staff do all they can to support new staff to the school."
