What the school offers its staff

Every school is unique and ours is no exception. One of our unique selling points is the relatively high average length of service of our staff, and relatively low rate of staff turnover. Neither of these are by chance and are the product of staff feeling trusted, empowered and recognised for leading the roles they do. We feel that a mark of the outstanding school we are is symbolised by the number of staff who choose to send their children to be educated with us.

Below is a list of just some of the ‘pull factors’ that contribute to making our school a great place to work:

  • An average of 17.4 students per teacher (full-time equivalent)
  • An iPad to use in school and at home, to enable seamless remote working, using cloud-based technology.
  • Commitment to staff wellbeing through a variety of internal practices, designed to recruit and retain the very best staff.
  • Complimentary use of the school sports facilities, including gymnasium, swimming pool and fitness equipment.
  • Comprehensive range of staff social events throughout the year.
  • Cycle to Work scheme
  • Focused weekly SLT meetings, which run to time and have a cut-off of 6:00pm – without fail!
  • Freshly prepared and cooked food available on site
  • Generous allocation of directed time - for the 2023/24 year, all teaching staff have at least 14% of the timetabled week allocated as non-contact periods; more for TLR post holders.
  • Health and wellbeing support including access to an Employee Assistance Programme (including partners and dependents), confidential counselling services and support from our Staff Wellbeing Group, who meet regularly to ensure that our staff wellbeing is prioritised.
  • Outstanding, tailored CPD
  • Pension Scheme membership (Teachers Pensions or Local Government Pensions Scheme)
  • Support in completing relevant external leadership development programmes.
  • The school is located within the beautiful Cotswold town of Chipping Campden, with friendly businesses, including a wide range of restaurants and pubs.

Chipping Campden School is an outstanding school (OfSTED 2017) with a long and distinguished history dating back to 1440, and a reputation to match. However, it is also a forward-looking school, striving always to provide the best opportunities for students to achieve their potential in a time of rapid change.

We provide a relevant and challenging curriculum to meet student developing interests and ambitions and our school environment is one which promotes high quality learning. However, education for life is about much more than the academic content of courses, and Chipping Campden School offers a wide range of enriching opportunities to prepare its students for their futures.

It is difficult to put into words the very special ethos of Chipping Campden School but is an inclusive and affirming place to be, both as a student and member of staff.
Located in such an outstandingly attractive town in the Cotswolds, you can enjoy living/working in such an area that is only a short journey from Stratford-Upon-Avon, Cheltenham and Evesham. Moreton has a main line station with direct link to Oxford and London.

There are approximately 1418 students in School, including 323 in the Sixth Form. Every student is treated as an individual while being developed into an active and positive member of the school community and a global citizen. The school offers a very wide range of extra-curricular activities including sport, music and drama and standards here are also very high.

We have a stable staff of well-qualified and talented professionals, united in our desire to ensure that all students reach their potential. We work collaboratively with parents, partner schools and colleges and external agencies to support individual students in this. There is a well established provision of staff development and regular meetings allowing opportunities to communicate, share good practice and challenge and ensure all are secure in the part they play in the success of the school.
