Head Boy & Head Girl Welcome

We would love to take this opportunity to welcome you all, prospective parents and pupils alike, to The Chantry School.

We like to think that our school is somewhat unique in its category, whether that be founded in its idyllic countryside location in the buzzing village of Martley or in the genuine care and dedication of our teachers within our small and nurturing learning environment. Our welfare is a top priority of everyone within our school community, which is why we also have a large and dedicated pastoral support network; from Peer Mentors who help younger students with their worries and troubles to the committed team in the Pastoral Support Unit for consistent advice and support concluded with the overall friendly and small environment we as students thrive in.

At The Chantry School we are provided with a strong community feel that is exclusive to us. The smooth functioning of our school relies upon us all; pupils, parents and teachers, co-existing and co-operating effectively so that our education is as successful and enjoyable as possible. Co-operation is a valuable skill Chantry pupils are exposed to through opportunities such as Young/community leader, Duke of Edinburgh, World Challenge and so on, teaching us the importance of working as a team in order to provide an enjoyable and memorable experience. Termly form competitions that include sports, cooking and science skills, as well as yearly talent shows and drama productions uphold our principle team work values.

Secondary school should be so much more than the curriculum – we realise this at The Chantry and encourage students to develop not only their learning and knowledge, but also their personalities, social skills and outside experience. We are provided an extensive range of extracurricular activities and trips, a highlight being a China trip in Year 9, Austria-skiing for every year group, Llanrug and Nettlecombe along with castles, theatres and places of geographical interest.

The Chantry School is always acknowledged for it’s wonderful environment with unbelievably hard working teachers whose efforts are not only reflected in the consistent above average results, but also the support you experience as you work towards your achievements independently and achieve your full potential.

Conor and Charlotte
