Bishop Challoner Roman Catholic Voluntary Aided Secondary School is a school in Basingstoke, Hampshire, England, founded in 1975.[2]

Main entrance

Students come mainly from three Catholic primary schools: St Annes, (Basingstoke), St Bedes (Basingstoke) and St John the Baptist (Andover) though other students are enrolled as well.[3]

In recent years the school has begun redevelopment of many of the facilities including the construction of a new library and a radio station.They have also now constructed a new sports hall.[4]

Religious Emphasis[edit]

Each house/tutor has their own classroom/Tutor room which, in the morning and end of day registration is held for each tutor.[5] It is also true that the school keeps the no meat on Friday rule.

Unlike many nearby schools, Bishop Challoner has religious education as a core GCSE subject.[6]
