Working alongside staff around CPD and their own development is a really rewarding aspect of school life and one that we place much importance on.

The school has a distinctive character and ethos which is unashamedly child-centred and emotionally intelligent in the way relationships are managed between staff, parents, students and governors. The school has a House system at the heart of its culture with vertical tutoring as a key facilitator. There are four houses - Bilbie, Hauteville, Moreton and Rodney.

The school is situated 8 miles south of Bristol between the villages of Chew Magna and Chew Stoke. It stands on a 30-acre site in open countryside overlooking Chew Valley Lake. The school buildings are surrounded by very pleasant grounds and landscaped gardens with on-site parking for staff. There are extensive playing fields, and good sports facilities. As a member of the Lighthouse Schools Partnership we offer a comprehensive package of staff rewards.
