A rigorous curriculum prepares children for 11+ Common Entrance. However, we encourage boys and girls to strive in all areas through providing a broad and balanced learning experience.
Games & The Arts
Music recitals, whole school productions and art specialist weeks are highlights throughout the key stages. PE lessons enhance physical skills and knowledge of the sports the children play and a strong emphasis is placed on competitive sporting activities through weekly fixtures.
Staff encourage pupils to apply themselves diligently to tasks and develop positive attitudes both in their work and in their personal relationships. The house system creates a strong community within the school and the extremely successful links with both local and international charities promotes a sense of wider social interaction and responsibility.
Senior School Exits
Children follow on to a variety of schools including St Paul’s, City of London, The Harrodian and Wetherby.
Head Teacher’s Philosophy
Chepstow House is a happy and purposeful family environment, where every member of the school community is important and all are valued as individuals, We aim to discover the best in every child and challenge them to go beyond their expectations.
The highly nurturing and welcoming ethos and environment. By the end of Year 3, the majority of pupils achieve well above expected levels of attainment in reading, writing, speaking and mathematics. ‘Teachers don’t teach the cohort, they teach the child’ and use children’s strengths to make them feel good about themselves’ resulting in ‘Well-rounded pupils, bubbling over with enthusiasm and curiosity.’ (Review from Good Schools Guide 2022).
