Welcome to
Chesterton Community College

Welcome to Chesterton Community College. Our school aim is to ensure that every student in our care realises their potential and we take that responsibility very seriously.

Our school ethos is the foundation for all of our work. The ethos was created in consultation with all the members of our community and it focuses on mutual respect and creating an environment where everyone can flourish. All visitors to the school comment upon our welcoming atmosphere and the courteous way in which students interact.

As a school we are keen to be at the forefront of education and our innovative work with iPads is helping to create learners who are truly independent and will be able to thrive in the twenty-first century. We believe that it is important to concentrate on what happens in the classroom and our school planning ensures  that students receive outstanding lesson experiences.

We know that we are educating and caring for the whole child, so we have a strong vertical tutoring and house system in place which focuses on mentoring students so that they are happy and fulfilled.

Chesterton Community College is a place where everyone is supported to succeed and it is a delightful place to learn and to work. We extend an open invitation for you to visit us and see the school in its daily routine.
