The Cherwell School is a secondary school with academy status on the Marston Ferry Road in Oxford, England. The current school site was built in 1963 as a secondary modern school, later becoming the main comprehensive school for North Oxford. It consistently ranks among the top ten state schools for Oxbridge entry. Along with later expansions, in 2003, and as part of a city-wide reorganisation, it merged with the Frideswide Middle School, and is now a split site school of 1,700 pupils aged between 11 and 19. The Cherwell School's previous headteacher was Mr N McGowan. McGowan announced his departure on 2 April 2010 after 8 months in post.. McGowan left at the end of May 2010 and was replaced by acting head Paul James. In October, Paul James was appointed Headteacher.
