The Chantry School has an excellent reputation for high quality education and pupil attainment. In summer 2017 78% of our pupils gained English and Mathematics at grades at 9 – 4 (the new grades being used from this year), once again placing the school amongst the best in the county. For the first time in September 2018, we will have 175 places available, an increase on 30 from previous years.
Lessons at The Chantry School are characterised by a calm, purposeful atmosphere where each pupil is enabled to learn and develop in a supportive environment. Staff have high expectations of the pupils in academic, behaviour and social aspects of school life, and pupils thrive in our caring environment.
As a relatively small secondary school we know our pupils very well indeed. Transition to secondary school can be a difficult time for some and we work hard to ensure this is a smooth process. We offer a wide range of support to pupils as they move through the school and our form tutors and pastoral care team are always available to help pupils with any difficulties they encounter.
We believe education should be memorable. In addition to our curriculum offer we also have a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities in sport, drama, art and music as well as exciting trips and visits including exchange trips to France, Germany and China. The Duke of Edinburgh award is active in Y10 and Y11 and we are also just about to embark on our third World Challenge trip, amongst many other activities and opportunities
