About the Lower School

Ethos

The Lower School, based on the beautiful Chatham House site is made up of Years 7, 8 & 9 boys and girls. This provides all students with an absolutely unique concept. A mixed environment whilst providing single sex teaching in all subjects.

The school is unashamedly built on old - fashioned values of respect and good manners. All students show great pride in their school with helps to create an ideal environment for learning and a strong ethos, helping them to mature in preparation for their move to the Upper School.

With only Year 7, 8 & 9 at Chatham House, the school has a small, friendly and inclusive atmosphere on a large site. This is ideally suited to assist the transition from Primary Secondary School for the new Year 7 students.

The Lower School is led by a very strong pastoral team, with the Houses creating a very personal experience for all students.
