  1. About Chetwynde

Chetwynde School is currently open as a Hub School for the children of critical workers.

Following the government announcements on the 11th May please see the letter from our Head Teacher, Stephen Jefferson, below: 


Thank you to everyone for being patient with us during this difficult time. If you are entitled to free school meals, then please order as normal through lunch shop before 10 am tomorrow. The school are providing packed lunches which will be delivered to you by a member of staff. We are awaiting further government guidance on this, so these arrangements may change. We will keep you updated.

Chetwynde is following all the government guidelines for schools and reviewing updates on a daily basis.

The Department for Education has released a helpline for further information.

Welcome Message


Chetwynde is a thriving school for boys and girls from the ages of 4 to 16. We provide an education that is supportive, challenging and inspiring, offering a balance between traditional values and a dynamic, forward-thinking approach that gives our students the foundations they need. We firmly believe that every child has the right to reach their potential and be encouraged to explore their talents and passions so they can build a future that will bring fulfilment and success.

Every child is unique; every child is special and deserves the best. From the time they join our school through to Year 11 graduation, children benefit from a family atmosphere where teachers strive to build strong relationships with students and provide outstanding teaching. Our exam results are going from strength to strength and students are guided to develop a strong work ethic underpinned by our three core values of respect, responsibility and resilience.

Our students are given innumerable opportunities to blossom beyond the classroom, whether that be pushing themselves to their limits on Duke of Edinburgh, enjoying art galleries in New York or speaking French in Paris on away trips, we will encourage them to see beyond the confines of the Furness peninsula. At the same time, we offer a nurturing environment that keeps them safe and listened to and which inspires them to achieve their fullest potential.

Students at Chetwynde will leave with happy memories, a sense of community and a wealth of experiences beyond just the academic.
