Our Ethos and Values

Chailey School a friendly, vibrant community school whose students are the very essence of a successful future society. Whilst our website gives a flavour of the breadth of the education and opportunities at Chailey School, including copies of key documents, school policies, our weekly bulletin and our news ‘blog’, the best way to get to know us is to visit us.


Chailey School is known to be an incredibly caring, friendly and nurturing school where the outstanding relationships between students and staff bring out the best in everyone. The Ofsted Report from January 2022 commented ‘This is a kind school. The school’s values of kindness, resilience, independence and creativity permeate everything.’

There is though, much more to Chailey School. We are highly ambitious and aspirational for every single one of our students. We believe it is important to take them beyond their immediate horizons in terms of both educational outcomes and learning opportunities. To do that requires a team of dedicated and high quality teachers and staff. We gain amazing exam results and have been recognised nationally for these. We are proud to have won national awards for both exceptional examination results, the quality of teaching and learning and the breadth of learning that takes place outside the classroom.

Each student’s experience of the curriculum matters. That is why we have been determined to retain a broad curriculum that embraces the arts and cultural activities as critical elements of a rounded education. We are proud that we participate in as many extra-curricular opportunities as possible, ranging from national and international competitions and events to trips at home and abroad. We continue to be successful against both state and private schools across a wide range of activities.

It is also important at Chailey that our teachers are active learners too; constantly refining and honing our skills through training and our annual programme of classroom-based research. This enables us to share our curiosity and enjoyment of learning with the students and challenge everyone in our Chailey community to aspire to achieve the very highest standards. We believe in the power of real experiences for our students and continue to work very closely with employers to bring the world of work into Chailey and to take our students into real work places.

Chailey School offers traditional British values of decency, mutual respect and discipline. These engender an inclusive environment that enables students and teachers to strive to be ‘the best they can be.’ Our aim is that every student who walks through our door is nurtured, challenged and given every opportunity to develop their knowledge, experience, character and leadership skills.

To prepare our students for the 21st Century local and global economy we strive to enable them to be able to use cutting edge industrial standard technology and work in a progressive and stimulating environment. We wish to inspire them to look beyond their immediate horizons and aspire to reach their dreams.


❖ We inspire a lifelong love of learning and a curiosity about the world in a safe and stimulating environment, both in and out of the classroom

❖ We encourage collaboration, reflection, mutual respect and honest intentions both within our school and in our wider communities

❖ We believe that self-respect and behavior supports great learning and we care about each other and our communities

❖ We promote inclusivity, providing opportunities for every individual to thrive within and beyond Chailey School

❖ We value hard work and resilience as key personal attributes in everyone

❖ We participate as active and valued citizens of the world, promoting democracy and guided by justice and compassion
