The impressive and picturesque grounds are some 15 acres in extent including substantial sports grounds. Educating children is both a responsibility and a privilege. At Chancellor’s School, we take our responsibility very seriously. We want our students to love school, yet be ready to leave and well prepared for the future. We want them to have achieved excellent examination results, been involved in a wide range of activities, forged lifelong friendships and, above all, have happy memories of their school days. Chancellor’s has a strong tradition and an excellent reputation for providing the very best education for its students. We aim to equip our young people with a breadth of skills and qualifications, as well as confidence and a natural curiosity that promotes happiness and success, both here at school and beyond. We want students to develop an enjoyment of learning and a desire to learn that will stay with them for life. We are unashamed in the importance we place on our academic results and this is matched by a rich extra-curricular provision. Our sport, music, drama and other activities are of the highest quality. Our teaching and learning is challenging and engaging for each and every child’s unique needs and talents. We firmly believe in the highest standards of behaviour and nurture positive and purposeful relationships, founded on respect and self-responsibility.
