Principal's Welcome

Whether you are a parent of a child already at the school or are considering sending your child to us in the near future, I hope that you find this website informative.

Caroline Chisholm is an oversubscribed, academically successful all-through school that strives to develop young people into ambitious, highly successful, happy and resilient young adults.  At Caroline Chisholm School, we believe that every student is capable of becoming a high performing learner, and we are committed to achieving HPL World Class School status. We make learning enjoyable from Reception year right up to the Sixth Form, and we provide a challenging academic curriculum, coupled with a very supportive pastoral system that nurtures the strengths and talents of each individual student.

We are incredibly proud to be the UK's first all-through state school, catering to the ages of 4-19. This means that when your child joins us in Reception, they can continue their educational journey in one setting all the way to Sixth Form. Our all-through provision has so many benefits not only for our students, but it is in absolute privilege for myself and each of our members of staff to see our students grow and work with them through each phase to be the best learner that they can be.

Extra-curricular involvement is not considered an “add on” at our school. Engagement in sports, the arts, school trips and out of class activities allow us to build the values, attitudes and attributes such as empathy and agility and work towards our ethos of ambition, confidence and success for all.

Our purpose-built, state of the art, all-through (4-19) provision makes Caroline Chisholm School a school for the 21st Century.

If you send your child to Caroline Chisholm School, you can be assured that we will work hard to look after them, unlock their potential and provide every opportunity to make their time with us fun, engaging, rewarding and successful – so that they can become confident, enterprising, global citizens.
