The first choice secondary school for Chiswick
We work closely with primary schools in Chiswick and our offer builds on the curriculum your child studies at KS2. We are determined to compete with private schools and were delighted that four of our Year 13 gained places at Oxford or Cambridge this year. Many of our teachers studied at Oxbridge and Russell Group universities and have strong subject knowledge which support challenge and stretch in our classrooms. We are proud of our diverse and comprehensive intake and strive to reflect our wonderful local community.
An aspirational sixth form destination
A Levels may seem a long time away and we are delighted that more of our students are choosing Chiswick School to study for these qualifications. Our newly refurbished sixth form centre provides excellent facilities and student destinations include top universities. From Year 7 we provide a comprehensive careers programme and students enjoy a visit to a University.
Providing an exceptional and rounded education to develop the whole child
We are proud that Ofsted awarded us an outstanding judgement for Personal Development. This means that our provision is a model for other schools and amongst the best in the country. Extra curricular, trips and visits, pastoral care and character education are included in this category, and as well as providing exceptional teaching and learning, we believe school should enrich young people and that the opportunities we provide should be life enhancing.
