Welcome Message from the Head Teacher

Headteacher: Mr Jefferson
Headteacher: Mr Jefferson

Chetwynde is a thriving all-through 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.

    Shoe Box Appeal

    Dear Parent/Guardian

    As part of the on-going charity work of the school we are once again supporting a Christmas project called Boxes of Hope Cumbria. This project sends shoeboxes of gifts to some of the most deprived children in Eastern Europe.

    To support the project, pupils pack a shoebox with gifts, wrap the box in Christmas wrapping paper and bring it into school. The shoeboxes are collected by the Boxes of Hope charity and then distributed to the children.

    This will often be the first Christmas gift these children have ever received, and each year thousands of lives are touched by the generosity of people from this country and others.

    For further information please visit

    Each pupil will receive a leaflet with information on what items you can put in the shoebox. You might also like to include a picture or a card to show the child who receives your box who it is from.

    Once you have filled your shoebox and wrapped it (wrapping the lid and box separately), if possible please include in an envelope inside your box a donation of £2 to cover expensive transportation and fuel costs. Then put an elastic band around your box and stick one of the labels from the leaflet onto your box to show who the box is appropriate for.

    We would love to be able to send as many boxes as possible from Chetwynde. If you are able to pack a box, please do. If you are unable to fill a whole shoe box then contributions are still very welcome. I know Christmas may still feel like a long way away, but the deadline is just a week after half term – boxes need to be back in school by Friday 6th November at the latest in order to arrive with the children by Christmas, but the sooner they are in the better in order to help us prepare for collection.

    Many thanks in advance for your support.

    Yours sincerely

    Mrs Venter
    Primary Teaching Assistant
