Mission Statement

Our school strives for excellence in everything we do to fulfil the potential of all students

Our Vision

Chatham House & Clarendon House Grammar Schools formally merged on 1st September 2013. Drawing on the long history of academic excellence at both schools and utilising our traditional buildings, we have embraced a contemporary outlook to teaching and learning: with Key Stage 3 retaining single sex classes and Key Stage 4 a combination of both single and mixed sex teaching.
The foundations of our success remain rooted in the traditional values and ethos of both schools:-

  • Community: Our belief that everyone in the school is equally valued and has a part to play in the school and wider community’s success;
  • Creativity: Students are encouraged to learn by taking risks and trying out new things;
  • Growth: All students aspire to make the most of the opportunities offered to them in order to become fully rounded individuals;
  • Success: Staff and students aspire to be outstanding in everything we do.
